Informed by the antithetical forces of religious history and present day pop culture, Lemon’s work directly expands upon the original Parcival’s famed quest for the Holy Grail. Lemon creates an elaborate setting in which the re-contextualized Parcival journeys with his audience through both physical and visceral spheres of sight, sound, and smell. Lemon creates for us a modern-day gesamtkunstwerk, or total work of art. First used to describe Wagner’s nineteenth century operas, the concept of gesamtkunstwerk was quickly appropriated by designers and artists to describe comprehensive, aestheticized environments. By keying into the musical and visual origins of gesamtkunstwerk, Lemon’s exhibition will center on an elaborate sound installation and performance.

Lemon has exhibited across the United States, most recently in a solo show at New York’s Fuse Gallery, and New Image Art. Will Lemon lives and works in Los Angeles.
An accompanying catalog published by Eighth Veil will be available throughout the exhibition.

Rebecca Taylor film, "Beautiful Dreamer", starring Kristy Kaurova

From New York Magazine's The Cut:

Rebecca Taylor is launching her revamped website tomorrow, and to celebrate, the designer created a short film titled “Beautiful Dreamer,” starring model Kristy Kaurova. The video opens with a Roald Dahl quote: “And above all, watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places. Those who don’t believe in magic will never find it.”

Of course, it’s probably easy to believe in magic when you’re constantly lit with a soft back-glow as you calmly stroke your fluffy cat and traipse around your mansion wearing various flowy white things while acoustic guitars strum and glitter falls from the sky. The film is pretty and demure in that dreamy Lula magazine kind of way, but offers a hint of edge in the form of a Pamela Love talon cuff on Kristy's wrist. Happy watching!
