Due to their very nature, periodical publications only get so close to the whole picture. Just like in a group show where you only get the perspective related to the exhibition rather than the whole of one artist’s scope.

VERY is like a group show, but it aims to portray the individual as truthfully as possible. Based on collaborations, it features artists and lets artists feature their work.

In this issue I am happy to present:

Architect Isabelle Devin in Sarajevo: Catherine Rannou
Filmmaker Aton Egoyan: Jan Stuart
Paris editor Nathalie Marchal: Nicolas Bertrand
Underwater, Music, Myth, Kodwo Eshun: Annmarie Davy
Cult Magazines as Collectibles
Fashion: Angela Hill
Inez van Lamsweerde, Vibeke Tandberg: Mika Hannula
Marie-Hélène de taillac making her mark, in stone: Uscha Pohl
Modern playwright Lauri Bortz: Marianne Nowottny
