T. Mills in video Lightweight. So far he’s the only guy I know who goes to the gym to smoke while listening to his ipod, and I think that’s what makes him awesome.

Can’t wait for the Hallows’ Eve to indulge your theoretical vices? Opening next week at Shizaru Gallery in London’s Mayfair, GREY AREA is curating a shop of art objects titled BAD FOR ME to complement BAD FOR YOU, an exhibition curated by Beth Rudin DeWoody.
The exhibition examines the human relationship with what is ʻbadʼ through examples like drugs, alcoholism, gambling, materialism, vanity, and cigarettes. At once humorous and grim, the art and objects in these shows avoid judgment and allow the consumer to draw their own conclusions. If you’re in town for Frieze, join us for a private preview on Tuesday, October 9 from 6:30-8:30 PM. The exhibition continues October 10 – November 23 in London and online.
Following the theme of the vice made nice, all the pieces at GREY AREA tackle a different instrument of iniquity making them seductive, amusing or even wearable. Cuddle with a soft bad habit by MEGAN WHITMARSH. Then savor a chocolate sculpture by VADIS TURNER or a resin-cast pill set by RAY GEARY. Pills, guns, blood, and cigarettes; you name it we have it. Just don’t expect any on-site psychiatrists.

A book by *folorunsho
“The more you give the more you get! Whenever you share with others you realize how much you have. When you give you feel rich.
We want to share with you all we have, especially our joy, strength, passion and creativity.”
LION BASE is a documentary photo book that provides an intimate perspective at the the raw life in the streets of postwar Freetown,
Sierra Leone documenting the life of 20 youths that were living under horrendous circumstances in a gutter called LION BASE. The
books stunning imagery invites you into a reality that most of us are unable to imagine. It follows the life of these youth and shows
their development: emerging from a life of violence and crime in the streets into forming the creative collective *FOLORUNSHO,
whose products and international collaborations are now available in selected locations around the world such as Collette in Paris.
It shows the transformation from a ‘struggle for existence’ to ‘creator of one’s own life’ by overcoming boundaries and obstacles and
transforming the ‘impossible’ to I’M POSSIBLE.
All proceeds from the sale of the book and the products go directly to the *FOLORUNSHO creative collective to provide themselves
with an education and adequate living conditions for the first time in their lives.
“It’s not about charity. It’s all about sharing!”
*FOLORUNSHO = born under the eye of God (in Yoruba)
