THE EDITION OF LARRY CLARK - ER SKATE
"Kids" Director Larry Clark Has a New Art Series and Shoe Collaboration Inspired by Skate Culture in Paris
For a recent collaborative project with luxury shoe designer Eugène Riconneaus, director Larry Clark worked on a new art series and a limited edition skate shoe that were revealed together this week in Paris. The project is called "New Work" and involves a co-mingling of works by both artists.
A statement on the director's website explains that the collaboration presents a "new vision of Larry’s most iconic and controversial photographs mysteriously tempered with Eugène Riconneaus’ 'Young Users 2000'", a soon-to-be-released series that documents skate wheel tracks left on the ground around Le Palais de Tokyo in Paris over the course of 6 years. The collab falls in line with the Kids director's interest in youth and subcultures, and is described as an "artistic encounter" that "explores new esoteric, erotic, and forbidden dimension of adolescence."
