"Shell Shocked Collection" is collaboration between the fashion-label Mesko and the artist Andy Leuenberger. Inspired by "Shell Shocked", a series of ink on paper drawings by Leuenberger, Mesko has designed an exclusive and wearable clothing collection. Black fabrics, asymmetric cuts, drapes, clear lines and screen-prints characterize this unique hand-crafted collection.

Mesko is fashion label making minimalistic, elegant, refined clothes with a touch of rebellious individuality. Set up in Slovenia in 1992, it moved to Zurich and is now based in Berlin. Using natural materials like fine cotton, viscose and wool, Mesko works with black fabrics, simple cuts and clear draperies. All clothing is handcrafted with extreme attention to detail.

Andy Leuenberger is an artist drawing from the comic genre, satire and the absurd. He regularly publishes art, cartoon and comic books and zines. Drawings, screen-prints and books are are presented internationally in exhibitions and at festivals for micropublishing, comic and printing art.

Shell Shocked

26.09. - 26.10.2018
Éditions Même pas mal, Marseille, France

"Shell Shocked" (2018), is a self-published book containing a series of ink on paper portrait drawings, in progress since 2016. “Shell Shocked” is the follow-up to “Making Space”, a series of drawings based on landscape long-shots, showing explosions, in news media. Shell shock is a term coined in World War I to loosely describe what is referred to as posttraumatic stress disorder (PSD) today. The mechanisation of artistic expression and the consequences of the ideals of Futurism are some further themes reflected on during the making of “Shell Shocked”. Drawings and screen-prints from this series were exhibited.

To lighten the atmosphere, drawings and prints in the style of the gags regularly posted on instagram.com/sirloin.burger, were also on display.

The exhibition was during a turbulent month in Marseille. I ended up moving my work-table into the exhibition, making it a work in progress situation and producing another body of work.
