A passion for luxury and beauty propels the multifaceted work of acclaimed international architect and interior designer Robert Couturier Robert Couturier s aesthetic is a dialogue between Old World elegance and contemporary design His masterful approach effortlessly brings eras together for example a Louis XVI commode with a s lamp Couturier s name has become synonymous with continental and international style and he is known for composing adventurous rooms that have a witty flair All his interiors extol the importance of how a home should stimulate the five senses from the tactile feel of upholstery to the visual presentation of objects that leads a person through a space The book opens with a tour of Couturier s country retreat in bucolic Kent Connecticut Composed of neoclassical style pavilions early American guesthouses and beautiful gardens the house features imaginative rooms that are filled with his collections of European art furniture and decorative objects A selection of the designer s other projects from smart contemporary apartments to romantic Mexican villas to a stately English manor provides further inspiration, Camille Desmoulins a journalist writing under the Montagnard regime of remarked that France s government had replaced the language of democracy with the cold poison of fear which paralyzed thought in the bottom of people s souls and prevented it from pouring forth at the tribunal or in writing How this happened how the Reign of Terror reached even into the realms of thought and language is the subject of Caroline Weber s book a revealing look into the paradoxical embargo on free expression that underpinned the Robespierrists self proclaimed despotism of liberty during the French Revolution Weber examines Jean Jacques Rousseau s and the Robespierrists articulation of a series of initiatives designed to curtail and control the dissemination of alternative political and philosophical messages in the republic Here Weber underscores the internal contradictions and limitations of an enterprise that promised universal freedom while oppressing particularism and that railed against the very language that it was compelled to adopt as a principal political tool The book then focuses on two eloquent contemporary critics of this phenomenon Desmoulins and the Marquis de Sade the infamous libertine author Weber demonstrates how Desmoulins reconfigured the Montagnard regime s rhetoric to conjure up a political system based on tolerance not terror and how Sade deftly parodied the Robespierrists brutality and hypocrisy proposing a republic based on the ruthless elimination of dissident voices and on the unabashed celebration of despotism and bloodshed A balanced account of how the discourse of totality actually restricted particular freedoms in the wake of theFrench Revolution this book provides a highly original and timely exposition of the political uses of rhetoric and of the links between language and power, This gorgeous book explores the fashion world s most coveted and iconic object the high heeled shoe Killer Heels explores the rich cultural history of the high heel and its relation to power fantasy sexuality and identity More than spectacular contemporary and historical shoe designs from sixteenth century Venetian platforms to twenty first century Christian Louboutins play with the cultural and artistic possibilities of the high heel use innovative or unexpected materials and push the limits of functionality and beauty Complementing the shoes are stills sketches and artist statements for six films specially commissioned for the exhibition from Ghada Amer and Reza Farkhondeh Zach Gold Steven Klein Nick Knight Marilyn Minter and Rashaad Newsome that explore a range of provocative themes and demonstrate the power of the high heel in the collective imagination In addition several of the designers included in the exhibition including Brian Atwood Zaha Hadid Pierre Hardy and Christian Louboutin along with Elizabeth Semmelhack Senior Curator of the Bata Shoe Museum contribute thoughts on topics such as their inspiration and design process and the cultural significance of high heels This collection of killer heels is filled with stunning photos and fashion lore br br This book accompanies a traveling exhibition br Brooklyn Museum September February br br Albuquerque Museum May August br br Palm Springs Art Museum California September January br br Currier Museum of Art Manchester New Hampshire February May, No description available
