NIALL O’BRIEN: ARTIST IN RESIDENCE
“My name is Tim, I’m fucking tall and I’m a fucking liability.”
Waking up to this voice mail one day while on a trip to Berlin with the lads I was pretty shocked. I knew it was Tim but hadn’t heard him sounding so violent before. Tim has a good soul regardless of how reckless he can be. I wanted to make a video of him using the sharp voicemail with a soft portrait. The contrast felt right. He is a good kid.
On the eve of Lisa’s Rovner’s opening Dear Reader, we invited friends and colleagues to join us for our inaugural plus one dinner to watch a preview of her new film Abstract Expressionism.
A NOTE FROM: THOMAS PERSSON
Your film with the Scandinavian beauty Sarah Liisborg got me thinking of the Norwegian actress Liv Ullmann in Ingmar Bergman’s Persona where she plays an actress who has stopped speaking. Sent to a summer house by the sea she passively violates her nurse, played by Bibi Andersson, by keeping silent and her true thoughts hidden. What is Sarah Liisborg really thinking about as she listens through the wall? In the following scene great drama is created with a kitchen glass:

BEAT Magazine, May 19- June 8
Hanna Hanra’s genre-redefining music ‘zine, Beat, launches the follow up to its much-celebrated debut issue. The Beat, defined by Hanra’s distinctive tone and Dean Langley’s (previously of i-D) strong art-direction, is jammed with exclusive music editorials and interviews with both legendary and emerging artists. Put together on the premises of how exciting something is, Beatʼs content is not dictated by release schedules – itʼs about how something sounds, a time capsule of a modern record collection.
The Beat is unique in that unlike other music mags, it allows respected photographers a space for visual experimentation and cultivates new photographic talent. Beatʼs editorial angle and reputation allows revealing, frank interviews with artists such as Nick Cave, Marianne Faithfull, Dave Grohl and Brett Anderson from writers such as Paul Flynn, Daryoush Haj Najafi and James Anderson, as well as finding and nurturing writing stars of the future.
Some contirbutors for Issue 2 include: Walter Pfeiffer, Alasdair McLellan, Claire Shilland, Mick Rock, Tyrone Lebon, Ryan McGinley, Brett Lloyd, Jason Evans, Nigel Shafran and Wolfgang Tilmans.
