KING KONG MAGAZINE PROPOSAL

COSTA BRAZIL PROPOSAL - THE SKIN YOU LIVE IN:

Subjects: LAUREN HUTTON, ANJELICA HUSTON and JERRY HALL

Photographer: Eli Russell Linnetz

What does it mean to live in the skin of a performer/model. What makes a performance- Is it down to the energetic exchange between people? We are looking for something essential real, deep, verified. We ask these titans of beauty & glamour - ‘How does it feel?’

LINNETZ: “I don’t like telling really talented people who are amazing what they should do. I’m just going to let them be. It has to be complete freedom—creativity has to be complete freedom.”


 

ABOUT KING KONG:

To give you a little information about our publication, we are an independent, art and fashion biannual magazine based in London/ Berlin, with the aim of providing a fearless platform for artists to push themselves beyond what is featured in most magazines today.

The PERFORMANCE issues

For the upcoming issues we want you to enjoy performing.

Performing in every sense.

Performance as in theatre, dance, film, music, photography, art, fashion and life. Perhaps even afterlife.

Performance as something staged or simply as it happens. Accidentally. On purpose.

High octane or slow burn - pushing the limits or sticking to boundaries.

Living as a performance: from the theatre of the mundane, to the theatre of the absurd.

From small-scale personal melodramas, to living life in cinemascope.

The world as your stage, or perhaps just your mirror.

For King Kong we’ll be looking for daylight - ideas with performance power to energize, inspire and shine…

For Garcon we turn to the night - ideas which power our darker sides to perform a different type of show…

Sex, sport, work, art, business, money are performance driven. Performance driven lives which lead to success or madness. Or both.

Performance is striving - giving your best, taking it to the limits. Survival or self-destruct?

Performance as an exaggerated act of theatricality or a quiet act of reflection. From grand gestures to a gentle nod of the head. From big statement to momentary glance. 

In Greek mythology there were nine muses covering elements of song, dance, theatre, astrology, history and the erotic. Muses to connect the mortals to the gods through performance.

King Kong hopes you will be inspired by them and your own internal muses.

OBLIQUE STRATEGIES:

The Oblique Strategies evolved from me being in a number of working situations when the panic of the situation—particularly in studios—tended to make me quickly forget that there were others ways of working and that there were tangential ways of attacking problems that were in many senses more interesting than the direct head-on approach.

If you’re in a panic, you tend to take the head-on approach because it seems to be the one that’s going to yield the best results. Of course, that often isn’t the case—it’s just the most obvious and—apparently—reliable method. The function of the Oblique Strategies was, initially, to serve as a series of prompts which said, “Don’t forget that you could adopt *this* attitude,” or “Don’t forget you could adopt *that* attitude.”

BIANCA JAGGER | IGGY POP | PATTI SMITH | CARA DELAVINE | CAROLINE TRENTINI | ZOE ISABEL KRAVITZ | PRINCE EA | JEFF BRIDGES

ENVIRONMENTAL RESPONSIBILITY

“Studies have found that when indigenous people are given rights to govern their land, biodiversity increases and more trees remain standing.” CONCERVATION INTERNATIONAL

INDIGINOUS PEOPLE OF THE AMAZON - who are the owners of the land? Does anyone really own land - custodians

  • how do we do this?

  • who do we talk to?

  • can we involve native people?

  • HUMAN RIGHTS

    BIANCA JAGGER - on human rights & environmentalism in latin america

    “Many among us here are wondering: why have world leaders given up on our future?

    At the Earth Summit, 1992, I called for a paradigm shift in our global environmental policies: for a new model of development incorporating respect for human rights, good governance, social and economic justice, environmental protection and respect for the rights of indigenous and tribal people. I was campaigning for governments and corporations to be held accountable for their actions.” BJ

  • how to we explain this and engage people from the west so they can understand & feel empowered

  • the cycle of using natural products that do not pollute the water systems

CONSERVATION INTERNATIONAL

  • what exactly is costa brazil’ involvement

  • laborate on FC involement

  • alot of people will think its just about donation - but we also have to explain the involvement and activation

HARVESTING OF INGREDIENTS

be more transparent about how we move forward with this - we need proof. where is this coming from and how. Explain no trees are being cut down in the process. paying fair wages prevents deforestation from not forcing people to go elsewhere.

Instagram and social media - opening up the questions to the audience with the ask me anything button - Particularly on the sustainability aspect. I think we should do a series of interviews with artists/designers/activists etc. where we don't always have to film them/ their faces specifically - we can send them a Q&A to answer and then do animated text conversations. 



 

MUSIC

Power of sound - Dance as medicine

how does dancing make you feel? what makes you want to move?

Uplifting playlists - happiness - keep people returning to the site, beauty of music for mood.

Follow the costa brazil ritual

  • play music, a delicious fruit, dance wearing nothing but jungle oil.

  • face massage - continue for one song per day - moment to care for yourself - massage to the beat

make playlists - [LARA]

Interview with KELLY LEE OWENS - healing vibrations of sound

Although music was always my first love - other passions of mine are medicine, science, biology and how it’s possible to help and connect with people who were suffering in some way. - KELLY LEE OWENS

This led me to begin practicing gong sound baths as well as researching the ancient roots in music healing. The vibrations & frequencies I felt unblocking me emotionally - creating physical sensations & tingles in my body. I was able to sleep better and think with more clarity and deal with emotions that would rise to the surface. I came across the Solfeggio Frequencies, sacred frequencies used in healing many years ago, each one having a title relating to its healing benefit & one even claiming to repair DNA - why wouldn't we listen?

There’s so much more to learn from music healing and I hope more people explore this area. In time patients in hospitals can be treated in more creative ways, or at least given the space to explore this while they are in hospital. We should keep our minds open and give ourselves the freedom to explore our own creativity; it is essential to our wellbeing and our happiness. - KELLY LEE OWENS


WHAT DOES AGING MEAN IN 2019?

COMBINE WITH LAUNCH OF SALTS - WORTH YOUR SALT

SELF LOVE AND MASTERBATION

article about auto-erotica sex writer contact.

I think masturbating is a really important function in art. People don't like to hear that kind of stuff, but it's true. That's what Genet did to create. I can always tell when somebody's been jerking off. All the great writers, Alexander Trochi, William Burroughs, and Arthur Rimbaud. To me, fucking and masturbation and art is all the same because all it is is total concentration. And that's what performing is, too. When I'm doing a long piece, a ten- minute "Gloria" or a really long "Land of a Thousand Dances," I have to concentrate just like I'm trying to come with a guy or just like when I'm masturbating. A good artist's always got his hand in his zipper. - patti smith
