TI PREVIEW: STEVEN KLEIN: STAG FILM

It is ultimately about ways of seeing. What is the way in which you choose to see fashion as opposed to art as opposed to sex as opposed to advertising in contrast to life, real life ? What are the lines separating and distinguishing all these driving forces in our culture? Photography is only truly powerful when it can provoke a body of questions and the beauty of this film lies precisely in the questions it pulls up in its wake..

You can see "Stag Film" for its pure beauty, as a series of images rendering the horse's classical form as a sculptural black and white abstraction. As the initial press release this summer for the gallery exhibition of "Stag Film" explained " Is it that Stag Film is simply about motion and emulsion and how light at 250th of a second captures and renders life static?".

But you also have the option of being startled and shocked by "Stag Film": by its realness in documenting the urgency in which this stallion battles a "phantom" mare.

Or you could synthesize all these layers of reaction and see a shadow play of life and death and sex ... of the species fighting desperately to perpetuate itself, of an artist identifying poetry in that struggle.

"Visionaire first featured the designs of Lee ALexander McQueen in 1996. Since that time, he has been a continuous inspiration and a presence in Visionaire. McQueen's special commissions are among our most treasured contributions. His daring designs and challenging ideas of fashion have consistently excited and provoked us. In 2003, McQueen came to our SoHo office and gallery to discuss collaborating aon an issue of Visionaire…an issue that never came to be. This is our tribute to him."
