Qompendium  Banalites Stationery Set 12/13
Collector's Edition

Imagine! Everyone says what they mean and actually mean it. We all tell a few white lies here and there. Hell black and grey ones too but there’s nothing like spilling the beans.  Why sugarcoat what’s really on our minds when it’s so much more fun to take the chance and run with it. So lay it all out on the line, in words.

Boldness has beauty in it.

64 genuine messages offset printed with 3 Pantone colors on 300 g/m2 Arjowiggins paper qualities along with black envelopes hand-selected in a silkscreen printed wooden case.

My Very Energetic Mother Just Said: Uh Oh No Pluto!
A planetary mnemonic is a phrase used to remember the planets (and sometimes dwarf planets) of the Solar System with the order of the words corresponding to the increasing sidereal periods of the bodies.

In 2006 the International Astronomical Union (IAU) declared Pluto to a dwarf planet. Pluto is now considered the largest member of a distinct population called the Kuiper belt and no more a planet.

Vintage Louis Féraud Tights
Posted
Wednesday, 26.05.2010

Louis Féraud died on 28 December 1999 after a long and severe Alzeihmer but he has left a great legacy. In 1950, Louis Féraud created his first "Maison de Couture" in Cannes and by 1955 had established a couture house in Paris on the Rue du Faubourg Saint Honoré. From the mid 1950s he was dressing the Parisian elite and designed the wardrobe of Brigitte Bardot for many of her movies. It wasn't however until 1958 that he presented his first haute couture collection in Paris. The early 1960s saw Louis Féraud hire the young unknown designers Jean-Louis Scherrer, Margit Brandt and Per Spook. Later in 1999 right before Féraud's death the Secon Group acquired the brand.

This is a Louis Féraud tights in baby pink we found wandering around a flea market in Wiesbaden, Germany.

Miracle Chips by John Baldessari
Posted
Monday, 28.12.2009

It all began many years ago with an innocent interest in the way people like to anthropomorphize. Animals, objects, just about anything can be given human characteristics. Following his curiosity, John Baldessari was soon enough making his own pictures of objects with barely perceptible human features. Maybe they would be detected, maybe they wouldn’t.

Dalí Dalí featuring Francesco Vezzoli
Posted
Friday, 18.09.2009

Dalí Dalí featuring Francesco Vezzoli is on view at the Moderna Museet in Stockholm  through January 17, 2010.

The exhibition experiments with the exhibition format itself by incorporating a contemporary artist, Italian Francesco Vezzoli (b. 1971), with the aim of highlighting Dalí’s oeuvre in a contemporary context, and understanding Vezzoli from a historical perspective.

Both artists have focused on the media phenomena of their respective times. The exhibition works range from traditional paintings, drawings and objects to film trailers, advertising posters and jewellery.

Moderna Museet, Stockholm

19 September 2009 – 17 January 2010

A comprehensive catalogue, co-published by the museum and Steidl, is currently available.
