June 2017 saw Coco Capitán debut her unrefined yet ever-popular collaboration with Gucci, working with Creative Director Michele Alessandro for AW17. After collaborating with the likes of Paco Rabbane, A.P.C and Maison Margiela, the artist drew on her experience with photography as well as her defining use of crude captioning for a capsule collection like no-other. A nod to street art, key staples from the Gucci collection were adorned with poetic scribble.
Spanish-born and London based, the 24 year-old photographer and artist has become an icon in the fashion industry for a long list of collaborations whilst winning a range of prestigious awards, including The Photographers’ Gallery Fresh Faced and Wild Eyed award.
Following up the successful Gucci debut, Coco Capitán has returned with a stand-alone exhibition to be shown in Seoul. Titled “Is It Tomorrow Yet?”, the exhibition explores the artist’s worldly perspective in over 150 works, in the form of photography, paintings, sketches, videos and installations.
Provoking unique thoughts from the viewer, each piece questions exisiting societal hierarchies, values and the what we consider to be the social-norm. Taking cues from pop-art and post-modernism, each work takes on its own aesthetic whilst being thoughtfully all-encompassed in an art collection.
You can view “Is It Tomorrow Yet?” until January 27, 2019, at the Daelim Museum:
