Jessie, an aspiring model with big dreams, arrives in LA. Her extraordinary beauty drives her meteoric rise to the runway stardom. However, it also becomes the ultimate source of jealousy for the women around her who vow to do whatever it takes to destroy it and her. Nicolas Winding Refn’s new film opened in Cannes to much controversy and fanfare. The Danish director has crafted a brilliant horror film, set in the cut-throat world of fashion which lends itself to a juxtaposing of the visual beauty of the modelling industry with piles of bloodied, mutilated corpses.

Having penetrated the Balkans in the fourteenth century, conquered Constantinople in the fifteenth, and reached the gates of Vienna in the sixteenth, the Ottoman Empire long struck fear into European hearts.

Marcel Duchamp’s Bicycle Wheel

In 1998 Ben Jakober and Yannick Vu collaborated on an obvious remake of Marcel Duchamp’s Roue de Bicyclette, his first “readymade” object. Duchamp combined a bicycle wheel, a fork and a stool to create a machine which served no purpose, subverting accepted norms of art.
