Artist Marc Turlan works with magazine imagery; tearing, cutting, and decontextualising paper to create disrupted works with flattened elements of the sculptural. In collaboration with Nike and commissioned by Givenchy’s Riccardo Tisci, Turlan turned his scalpel on two intense faces in A MAGAZINE CURATED BY, removing everything but their confrontational glares for a figurative take on Nike Air.

Another work shows an adolescent of middle-eastern origin, shrouded in an oversized hoodie silhouette and referencing religion, a well-established strand within the world of Tisci thematics. A brand that reaches beyond sportswear, Nike’s purposeful clothing provides an adaptable uniform for a broad cross-section of society, with the athletic juggernaut’s sneakers going on to ground the feet of many more, including Tisci himself.

Yet portrayed here is a subculture culled from underneath. It’s the heavy mood of angry, disenchanted street kids in hoods, the next Brazilian talents kicking footballs in tees under baking sunlight and an evergreen grouping of teens-twentysomethings united in voice.
