Bulletins of the Serving Library #12
Winter 2016/17


Edited by Francesca Bertolotti-Bailey, Stuart Bertolotti-Bailey, Angie Keefer, David Reinfurt
With contributions by Vincenzo Latronico, Mathew Kneebone & James Langdon, Sarah Demeuse, Johan Hjerpe, 9mother9horse9eyes9, Jumana Manna & Robert Wyatt, Lucy McKenzie, Mark de Silva, Jocelyn Penny Small, Abigail Reynolds

This issue comprises various outlooks on “perspective.” This might be taken to mean something as specific as a particular opinion or as general as an axonometric projection; in short, different ways and means of looking at the world. And so we find Vincenzo Latronico attempting to get in touch with E.T., a collection of Lucy McKenzie’s illusory quodlibets, a conversation between Jumana Manna and Robert Wyatt on art and ethics, a timely analysis of “Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous” by Sarah Demeuse, along with other points of view from Mark de Silva, Jocelyn Penny Small, Abigail Reynolds, James Langdon & Mathew Kneebone, Johan Hjerpe, and the inimitable 9mother9horse9eyes9.

Atelier E.B.
Ost End Girls



Atelier E.B is the company name under which the designer Beca Lipscombe and the artist Lucy McKenzie sign their collaborative projects. The group was formed in 2007 by Lipscombe and the illustrator Bernie Reid, who are based in Edinburgh, and McKenzie, who is originally from Glasgow and lives in Brussels. Since 2011 the pair have operated as a fashion label, and this June at Galerie Micheline Szwajcer they present their third collection, The Inventors of Tradition II, for sale direct to the public from a custom-built boutique installation.
Art’s fascination with fashion rarely penetrates beneath its glamorous surface, seemingly content to perpetuate its contradictions without critical analysis. Atelier E.B, by placing both practices on an equal footing, combine art and fashion to explore many complex themes, including alternative forms of commercial production and distribution. Their designs are produced, sold and promoted ethically, yet are too idiosyncratic to be easily marketed as an ‘eco brand’. Ateler E.B recognise that clothes are sophisticated tools for empowerment and pleasure.

Sportswear has been acting as a modernizing influence on fashion since the nineteenth century, and continues to be at the forefront of how people express their cultural allegiances. In 2014, with the referendum to leave the United Kingdom, Scotland was asked to reflect on its identity, and Atelier E.B is the only label explicitly to address this through fashion. For IOT II they combine exquisitely woven or knitted cashmeres and silk lingerie with neo-classical nylon ‘cosplay’ tracksuits. Hand intarsia Scottish football tops in cashmere have nationalist logos appropriated then pixilated. Silk and lace football shorts, oversized polo shirts, a football hooligan paisley shawl, fake Charles Rennie Mackintosh jewellery, counterfeit Bennetton, a trompe-l’œil zip brooch, and fictitious sponsorship from the Clydesdale Bank. Other highlights include a wool mix school-skirt, an Ivan Lendl picnic blanket, the perfect artschool-girl coat, cashmere leisure suits in Black, Derby grey, Blackcurrant and Rum and Eastern European gym shoes.

This publication was produced by Atelier E.B. around their “Ost End Girls” collection, featuring garments, texts by Lucy McKenzie, photoshoots and graphic details/textiles/showroom interiors/shop-fronts/ads from the work of Atelier E.B. (and also Marc Camille Chaimowicz), Designed by H I T studio, London.

Lucy McKenzie
After Inspired by an Atlas of Leprosy

This artist’s book is published on the occasion of two exhibitions by Lucy McKenzie, one at Daniel Buchholz galerie in Berlin and the other at the newly opened Daniel Buchholz gallery in New York. The book takes the form of an inventory from an estate sale. It lists all items and describes them with faux provenances and sources. These objects and items are the sculptural and painterly artworks of the exhibitions, rich and intricate in Lucy McKenzie’s attention to trompe l’oeil detailing and art/decor/cultural/historical references.

Lucy McKenzie is a Scottish artist, based in Brussels. She is represented by Galerie Daniel Buchholz, Cologne; Cabinet, London and Galerie Micheline Szwajcer, Brussels.
