Running towards NINTH's Anniversary issue can only mean fishing for more inspirational grub -
you [will] get my point. Food is inevitable. Consider it vital for my artistic wellbeing.
HERE'S SOME EYE GRUB. PROCEED TO HOVER OVER FOR THE WORD VOMIT.
The art of playing with an object surfaces when the composition’s an inch away from angelic and there's no need for a makeup artist. One man down. Then again, everything spirals downwards on a hazardous track when a team member gets hungry (because fish are food, not friends) or it decides to attract a bunch of flies till further notice.
From a personal perspective, I’ve always found it peculiar that anyone would find ’still life' worth a shot in the career department. Communicating and working alongside a homo sapien (to put it less scientifically, in this case, we call them ‘models') has become an inevitable curriculum in my world. To commit a lifetime to creating art from objects - that never had to feel or play with your emotions - raises the question: can a slice of bacon trigger emotions?
Perhaps I’m the wrong person to approach. Perhaps we need someone who cannot find it in herself to sob one bit while walking away from the swans at any park - Gardenia's bread spilling across the lake. Who didn’t attempt to sink into a pool of sadness when Murakami ended Norwegian Wood with the intention to piss someone and her lunch off. Maybe we just need someone who can even forget to have lunch.
If it hasn’t been obvious, the topic of food intertwined with fashion has always aroused an air of excitement where NINTH is involved. A big ass watermelon (lugged and driven around like royalty) in the fifth issue. Lunch-cum-prop fillet o’ fish in the fourth. The third put pineapple tarts into polaroids. Two had 2-hour-old stale har gow from Chinatown. You saw the first issue with Rena making breakfast. On the floor.
You get my point. Food is inevitable. Consider it vital for my artistic wellbeing.
To rest my case, NINTH's anniversary issue (YOU HEARD RIGHT) won't be leaving the grub out. Put those tastebuds on hold till next Wednesday, 9th September.
In celebration of NINTH's birthday, an editorial will be shot by all-time-favourite Christopher Leow. Also featuring a special conversation with Dylan Ong, co-brainchild of Saveur and The SAVEUR Group. (Yes, that one that makes a badass mashed potato with that Duck Confit)
Lots of love and gourmet fashion,
And they all ate and were satisfied | Mark 6:42
