On December 13 Galerie 180 will open the new exhibition Demophobia with works of the Ukrainian artist duo Synchrodogs and Dutch photographer Isolde Woudstra. Both the work of Synchrodogs as that of Isolde Woudstra is about the loner, the dreamer, about identity and body language. The relation between the person being portrayed and its surroundings play an important role in the images of these photographers. Synchrodogs focuses on the extravert, while Woudstra’s focus is more on the introvert side. Their pictures share a mysterious and sometimes ominous aesthetics, and invite the viewer through surrealistic suggestions to submerge oneself in a dream state. Demophobia will be on view from December 13 to January 17, 2013 at Galerie 180 Voorstraat 180, 3311 ES Dordrecht, The Netherlands

This volume compiles all of the photographs from Terry Richardson’s wildly successful 2012 show Terrywood, held at the OHWOW gallery in Los Angeles. Terrywood is the photographer’s vision of everything that Hollywood has meant and continues to mean in the public imagination: grand-scale glitz, big-budget glamour-and of course the awards ceremonies, in homage to which Richardson produced a series of ten award statuettes for the show, fashioned in his own bespectacled likeness. You can buy the monograph here.

Lisson Gallery presents an exhibition of new works by seminal American artist, Lawrence Weiner. Widely recognised for his pioneering role in the development of conceptualism in the 1960s, Weiner has spent the last five decades deconstructing artistic practices into various concepts of language and idea. In his new show, Weiner focuses on the concept of truncation, a mathematical term referring to the discarding of unnecessary digits, as an inherent meaning and material reality. His works will populate the gallery walls on a grand and small scale, and will include a new piece occupying the entirety of a 12 metre wall. Be That As It May will be on view until January 12, 2013 at Lisson Gallery, 52-54 Bell Street, London
Brussels based publishing house Shelter Press presents Camille Vivier’s new book titled Veronesi Rose. Born in Paris in 1977, Camille Vivier started her photography career as an assistant in Purple magazine. After studying at the Grenoble Fine Arts School and Saint Martins, she dedicated herself entirely to photography and works at the same time in the art and fashion worlds. Camille Vivier explains her her new book: “Girls lying on concrete disonaurs are facing obsolete neon signs. Broken, knocked down, abstract, discarded, left there. The girls are naked, in black and white, static. The neons are coloured, saturated like comic strip boxes. Prehistoric monsters, mysterious beauties follow and merge with relics of modern cities. Metals, skins and stones collide. Pages unattached slide and mix to deceive time and order.” See more photographs from the book after the jump. [CLICK HERE...]
