‘DMYCC’ BOOK RELEASE BY SEAN VEGEZZI, NEW YORK CITY
11/09/2017
Events, News
DoBeDo contributor Sean Vegezzi is releasing a new book, DMYCC, which documents the artists’ decade-long engagement with a cavernous underground area constructed beneath Lower Manhattan. DMYCC is comprised of the book, an hour long video piece and his first ever collection of prints. 
 
As New York City experienced aggressive development and hyper-securitization of public and private realms, Vegezzi and his friends were drawn towards undefined spaces to pursue their own forms of autonomy and release. From early adolescence onward they leveraged this piece of failed architecture into an alternate social forum, stage, club, and studio space. Over the years we see DMYCC develop from a contaminated space with non-functioning utilities into one treated with dust control chemicals to improve air quality, a working drainage system, primed walls, repaired electricity lines and lighting systems.
 
The book is presented as a loose chronological narrative, with the images in DMYCC eventually forming a comprehensive mapping of the territory; ranging from early evocative analogue photographs of youthful explorations through to video stills, receipts, and architectural floor plans; concluding with full-scale photographic surveys that challenge bureaucratic structural reports in both detail and formal composition. 

DMYCC will be released at the opening on Sunday September 24th, and is available to buy online here.

The publication of DMYCC is also accompanied by the release of a collection of prints made available by the artist. To view more information please click here.

‘LANDSCAPE WITH TREE’ EXHIBITION BY JAMIE HAWKESWORTH, AMSTERDAM
24/08/2017
Exhibition, News
Landscape with Tree

DoBeDo contributor Jamie Hawkesworth has an upcoming exhibition, Landscape with Tree, at the Huis Marseille in Amsterdam. 

Hawkesworth’s approach to photography is grounded in the subtle, elegiac and playful heritage of British documentary photography. With his works exhibited across the 14 rooms of the beautiful Huis Marseille, Hawkesworth aims to create a photographic experience in synergy with the architectural setting, and in anticipation of your engagement with the works.

In Landscape with Tree you can explore the spectrum of experiences that Hawkesworth has sought out with his camera of the past ten years, and the places this has ultimately taken him. The exhibition manifests his sustained and transitory intimacies, planned and unexpected journeys, and wonderful immersions.
