Thank you for this. Especially the video.

Profound loss.

Love or loathe his aesthetic, he had tremendous talent and was very, very good at what he did.

yes, thank you for the video- i'd never seen the robot/spray paint clip.

so sad.

Errant Aesthete said...

How trite the words seem when pitted against the video. The narrative, the execution, the mere idea of it -- nothing else needs to be said.

there is a great interview with McQueen by Sarah Mower on the site- He references this show as his favourite. a loss beyond comprehension at this point, I went back to his collections on that site too- and it is astounding to see. Do go to model's own (linked on my site) to read her experience with his 1999 collection-it is a beautiful tribute. pgt
