Detalj

«Brian Dettmer sifts through stacks of antiquated books, boxes of dusty cassette tapes, and piles of obsolete maps to uncover the perfect source and subject for his conceptual explorations and sculptural dissections. Dettmer alters pre-existing materials by selectively removing and manipulating elements as a way to allow new interpretations and ideas to emerge. With the precision of a surgeon, Dettmer uses scalpels, tweezers, and other medical instruments to carve into the surface of his found objects to reveal hidden meanings.»

Sykeste jeg har sett på VELDIG lenge!

Jeg liker jo godt gamle fiskerklær. Saint James Nautical Sweaters er fine.

The SAINT-JAMES Company has been established in Lower Normandy, in the commune of Saint-James, close to Mont Saint-Michel, since 1889.

Its fame is based upon a cult item of clothing «the genuine pure new knitted woolen Breton seaman’s sweater». Originally intended for deep sea fishermen, then adopted by known seafarers, and amateur yachtsmen.

Aye, Aye!
