“The ideas I'm working with are ideas I'm committed to. I don't know how to soft-shoe them. I don't know how to make them more palpable. I just never knew how to be one of those girls. I wish I knew how to be that sometimes, but I don't know how to be that way.” -Carrie Mae Weems

Eve Marie Blazo is a Brooklyn native currently living in San Francisco. At Brown University, she became smitten with photography, celluloid, and the endless discourse about said art. And naturally, with challenging the liminal space of her own image--as a racially mixed woman with the odd privilege of passing.
Post-graduation, she fell--purely by accident--into the fashion world, writing articles and assisting stylists on photo shoots at Vogue, W, Style.com, and more. Most recently, she found a home at Tawkify, a dating startup created by her favorite human, E. Jean Carroll, recruiting potential matches and directing creative projects.

MORNINGS AFTER: Our only-waking moments
by Ana Cecilia Alvarez

“I like sleeping when the world is asleep and being awake when the world is awake. I also like being alone. I really love it. But I need to be careful not to lose human contact, which I seek through seeing friends one-on-one. This new apartment is conducive to that kind of intimacy. My friend India came over and we coined this apartment the Deepest Self Club, a phrase that came from this essay I was reading by Anaïs Nin, whom I love so much. She talks about “the deepest self.” I don’t know why those words are so important; they’re not that profound. Like yeah, your core. But I like to endow this space with that idea...It’s hard to find places in New York that are comfortable, so I like giving my friends a space they know they can come to. It’s been said a million times, but I do believe in a city like New York that having a room of one’s own is vital.”
--Durga, and her Deepest Self Club

“SIGNAL is proud to present Sisyphus, an installation by LA based sculptor Sean Shim-Boyle, running from September 5th-October 5th, 2014.

A set of automatic sliding glass doors face one another in the center
of the gallery space. Both sensors facing inward, their synchronous
movements arrest each other, and the two remain locked in a staggered,
perpetual standoff. Subtle alterations to the architecture of SIGNAL
establish an airless backdrop for this endless pas de deux: the
familiar longitudinal beams in SIGNAL's ceiling have been
painstakingly lateralized; light fixtures dropped to the
custom-fabricated height of the doorways; wall-markings, scrapings,
and support brackets seem to suggest the structural residue of
long-abandoned usage.
The central sculpture in this exhibition originally appeared in
Shim-Boyle's 2013 solo presentation at LAXART, Los Angeles, A Rising
Tide Lifts All Boats.”

See video of the installation at LAXART: vimeo.com/79515915

SIGNAL stages ambitious, often large-scale exhibitions by emerging artists. SIGNAL is run by Kyle Jacques and Alexander Johns in Brooklyn, NY.

Merging cutesy-kitsch with raw island badassery, Pum Pum Socks co-founders Gemma Shane and Savannah Baker are right on the pulse of this season’s girlish, nonchalant ‘tude. The brand calls on its riot grrrl ancestors, with its femme-tough twists and patriarchy-smashing sensuality. But think--less punk-politics, more women of color, and true wearability.
These candy ragga wares can be seen on the likes of Lana Del Rey, Rita Ora, Jungle Pussy, Azalea Banks, Phoebe Collings-James, Wynter Gordon, and many other iconic gyals. Pum Pum Socks will publicly launch in November 2014.

14 x 9 x 53 inches

“Tucked in the back of Sarah Mattes’ studio, an empty square plaque is erected above a pile of what look like white stones, stacked to mid-height. Composed of wood, steel, nails and plaster, “the way i remember it,” stands stark, like a tombstone to no one.
To the right, eight wooden plates hang on the wall. Mattes has dug into the wood, rubbing pigment on and off. Their surface is painstakingly carved, like lacerations in skin.
A large grey canvas with spots of black hangs adjacent. Called "walking," the canvas conjures up images of the sidewalk in winter, the ground blackened, but not dirty, adorned with spots of gum.
Although mostly pale in color, Mattes' creations have a dark undercurrent. Yet it becomes clear: nothing can harm us here, not the wooden pole growing out of the wall nor the steel wires curled in the corner.”
