HALF CONCEAL, HALF DISCLOSE
The Unveiling of the Creatures of Comfort New York Store Flag
with Collection of Works by
Brian Roettinger and Zen Sekizawa
June 14 - July 14 2011
June 14th, 2011; 6:00-9:00pm
205 Mulberry Street, New York
This coming Flag Day, historically held on June 14th, Creatures of Comfort New York is excited to present the unveiling of the Creatures of Comfort Flag, designed by Los Angeles based artist Brian Roettinger.
Jade Lai commissioned Roettinger to design the store’s signifier, which has been constructed in a non-traditional form to challenge the way one often thinks of a “flag” in the wind. In conjunction with the unveiling, Creatures of Comfort will present “Half Conceal, Half Disclose,” a collection of work by Roettinger and photographer Zen Sekizawa. Taking place in Creatures of Comfort’s adjunct gallery, “Half Conceal, Half Disclose” is inspired by the wind and its effect on shape and environment. Roettinger and Sekizawa’s collection of work explores how the wind, as an invisible force, has culturally been perceived as embodying an unearthly presence. There will be a limited edition collaborative tote designed by Creatures of Comfort owner Jade Lai and the featured artists, as well as a limited edition booklet by the artists.
Punk pioneer Howie Pyro (the blessed, FREAKS, D-Generation, Danzig) and Resurrection pared up to put together a collection of danceable and refreshingly odd tunes. Vogue wrote about it here.
