VISIONAIRE 69 2020 guest curated by the inimitable, multi-hyphenate star, Edison Chen, comes as a “stencil kit” featuring 10 stencils made of laser-cut copper in response to a most challenging year by Nick Knight, Naomi Campbell, Tom Sachs, Dr. Woo, Zeng Fanzhi, Cao Fei, LeBron James, Kelly Beeman, Shayne Oliver, and Alaia Chen. Copper is imbued with antimicrobial properties making it the ideal material for this edition. Furthermore, copper remembers; it is an archive of all the hands that have touched it, and will oxidize over time to form a unique turquoise patina, thus altering its appearance. The edition comes wrapped in a Clot silk scarf and includes a face mask by Barbara Kruger.
This is the first edition produced entirely in China with a Chinese brand through our joint-venture STARK VISIONAIRE, focused on artist collaborations for the China market. The editions were produced to include a can of VISIONAIRE-branded black spray paint, but with the current state of the world and the delays we have endured, we were forced to remove the cans of spray paint which now sit in our office in Shanghai.
