Shalom Harlow: PH: Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin: Purple Magazine Vollume III, Issue 8
I've been trying to sort out the fate of "Pretty Much Everything, Volume One" the massive Inez van Lamsweerde and Vinoodh Matadin monograph that covers 20 years of their photography. It was supposed to have been published in January of 2007 by 7L , but a year later...no sign. The infamous opening at the Matthew Marks Gallery (The Now People Part 2: Life on Earth.) certainly whetted a lot of appetites. My hissers tell me the Matthew Marks nation had never seen that much drama, status coats and statements handbags in years upon years. Other than that, hopes for a catching a comprehensive chronicle of the late 90's work of Inez and Vinoodh are scant, that is unless you visit the airdeparis.com page that hosts several brilliant examples of their images of 10 years ago. This is where the commercial machine of Inez and Vinoodh had first started revving via the work for the Balenciaga campaign, Visionaire and V. There are brilliant glimpses of how past exhibitions of the work has been staged at mmparis.com as well as 926 archival images at artandcommerce.com. In any case if you know the story on the glitch RE: Pretty Much Everything, hiss it here. An anoynmous poster had given us a wondeful update on the whereabouts of I+V's Art and Commerce agent. Might that well informed tipster know something?
