Dior & I

Raf Simons is undoubtedly a genius, but even a genius has to bear the weight of history sometimes, especially when you are charged with creating your first ever haute couture collection for the infamous maison Dior. The documentary doesn't set its camera, unblinking, on Simons alone, but also explores the inner workings of the atelier - the tailors, the seamstresses, who are really the fuel that feeds the engine. It is always easy to dismiss fashion documentaries as vapid and woolly (it's easy because so many still don't consider fashion an art, or cultural pursuit) but Dior and I is a continuation of the excellent work we've seen in The September Issue, The Eye Must Travel, and Bill Cunningham, New York. Whether you like your frills or not, it is a worthwhile watch. / Kate Coleman

exhibition

The Untold Want

Inspired by the work of the late Irish artist Willie Mckeown(1962-2011), The Untold Want makes great use of the vast, open spaces in the RHA to depict the immensity of space and the vulnerability of humanity. The rooms are sparse and carefully curated, each artwork complimenting the next; Robert Gober’s abstract piece, a baby’s chair cast in bronze, is placed in proximity to Vija Celmins’ meticulously crafted Reverse Galaxy, juxtaposing the vulnerability of a child with the great scope of the universe. Other highlights include a particularly aurally satisfying slide projector(think early 1990s View- Master) that depicts a haunting, characterless cartoon romance, Nan Goldin’s photography collection The Ballad of Sexual Dependency which is an honest and intimate depiction of the harrowing downsides of a grunge lifestyle, and pieces that tempt viewer interaction, including a pile of sweets. I didn’t take one but I kind of wish I had. / Ben Allen

performance

The Girl Who Believed In Magic

Even for those unfamiliar with her music, there is something very charming about Julie Feeney's concert-meets-performance art show. She coos at the audience from behind a gauzy curtain, all done up in exuberant costumes like one of the Scissor Sisters (the band, not the murderers) in glitter and sparkle. The music trips along, interspersed with hazy projections of black and white renditions of Alice in Wonderland and the like. The one thing I would say is that what the performance might lose from Feeney's hesitation and self-consciousness regarding the choreography, she more than makes up with in sheer vocal and instrumental skill. A show by a girl who believed in magic, for anyone who believes in magic. / Kate Coleman
