This spring REVS No14 TASTE issue speaks of how far we go to satisfy our hunger for life, for taste. What happens to us when that hunger grows, who do we become? Pages bouncing between the taste of living and flavours – too much to have, too much to bear, irresistible.
In the cover story by Federico Cabrera portraying Chloe Memisevic, we can see her breaking like a piece of glass into a multi-layered character – when desire becomes an obsession endless versions of ourselves appear.
The issue continues with an extended interview to Makoto Azuma, known for his unreal and beautiful works such as the “Iced Flowers” exhibition.We also hear the stories behind illustrator Travis Bedel, aka Bedelgeuse and The Blank Kitchen, a project that explores taste in simple yet creative ways.
The playful Tumblr sensation Izumi Miyazaki talks about her dreams and how they evolve into her beautifully unreal works. We also had the pleasure to feature Undercover SS15 shot by a dear friend and contributor Jörgen Axelvall in Tokyo. Finally, a look into the works of sculptor Dirk Staschke questions our needs and desires.
The story of Taste is told in four core fashion stories – SPICES, by Johanna Nyholm. THE FLESH AND THE TOUCH, by Dennis Stenild. PRESERVED, by Nhu Xuan Hua. APPETITE FOR ATTRACTION, by Nicolas Guérin.
