Recently in Berlin I connected with photographer Mudita Aeron who came from London specifically to do the below shoot.
The art direction, styling and makeup is done by me and big ups to Rubbish Fairy for the loan of some of her special creations!
Behold a stop animation I made in Berlin with the help of two of my cosmic witch sistas Viviana Druga & Frau Feeger. With our powers combined we created some art that makes me proud and for filled my vision.
I loved spending two weeks solid in Berlin in my studio leading up to the shoot making the heads and painting backgrounds. I had been sitting on these ideas for a while so it was very satisfying to execute them before I left for my Australian tour.
Gaffy new year, love and light!
I hope to do this performance live with Betty when I return to Australia for the summer…
Harry Clayton-Wright is pure genius. His existence on this planet should be celebrated twenty-four hours every day of the week by all living creatures!
I had the pleasure of meeting Harry in the flesh at the beginning of Edinburgh Fringe this year. I love everything about him. Especially his art, dance shapes and style.
Speaking of his art, check out Harry’s new video WE HEART BLACKPOOL. It’s sooooooooo goooooooooood!
I look forward to creating with him in the not so distant future…
In between the chaos of touring this summer. Last week, I returned to my current home base – Berlin – to install a window display at my favourite space – SAMEHEADS
I started making my face pieces earlier this year when I moved to Berlin and was removed from Facebook over the “real name” saga
The installation is called FACELESS and will be in the window for the next two months
Pop by if you’re passing by…!
What an amazing time… Double in size this year with 600 people in total, it was as wonderful as ever
I feel privileged to have been part of it three years in a row now watching it evolve and blossom dancing to an array of my favourite musical genres non stop all weekend
Below are some shots I took of the magic that took place…
I am in love with these two videos from ADANOWSKY‘s new album – ADA (out now)
He is rocking two solid looks I adore and styling it out in every way with so much beautiful imagery…
I look forward to creating together this year in Paris!
Cosmic superstars Skip&DIE are at it again with their super fresh new hit and video – SPACE GIRLS!
Entranced from beginning to end…
“Fuck gravity! Blow it up! In this grave world of greed, injustice and trouble, we’ve got to learn to love ourselves and each other. We are strong, beautifully diverse, layered beings – each and every one of us – yes, that means YOU too! And we hold visions of utopias in our hands. From birth, to death, to rebirth, we sow our seeds of hope & revolution. Together, we will overcome trauma and division. We don’t care what ‘type’ of women we are, we’re planets, we’re SPACE GIRLS!”
– Cata Pirata
In the last year, I have journeyed to many magical places on this planet. I captured a few of them and made a film…
It is to be projected at an exhibition in Shanghai next month
The last shots with my moon sista Lexi were taken in my old bedroom in London
Enjoy this taster into my every day life… Welcome to Gaff E world!
Fast-forward seven years to when I was in Berlin last where I decided to make a video for it.
It’s a track that always makes me smile and dance. So I present to you this video and track if you haven’t heard it. You can download it for free HERE
Hope you like our freak out strobe dance session!
Dancing in the dark is the best…….
The footage was shot and mixed direct to tape by maverick direttore Alexi Ferrari (Kylie Minogue, Coldplay, Jack Ladder & The Dreamlanders)
Watching it for the first time, I was transfixed by every beat and shape made…
I DIG THIS SO MUCH!
Kirin just gets better and better… So proud of him!
After spending the last two weeks offline climbing mountains in Tasmania and presenting a new show at Adelaide Fringe, I arrived in Melbourne yesterday to shape down the catwalk at the Perfect Runway fashion show for one of my favourite designers: Fizzy Fingers
This new collection- AZUKAR BAZOOKA – designed in collaboration with Mexican artist METEORO blew me away… When I saw these designs, I felt like I had been transported to my ultimate rainbow paradise I had created in my head!
It brings me joy to be part of something so special and full of magic and I adore seeing my friends taking their creations to the next level
I think what I’m trying to say is… You rock my world Rutter!
Here are some shots I took backstage before the show…
If you don’t know of her by now, it’s time to get with the program and embrace the queen drag terrorist of the underground of RIGHT HERE, RIGHT NOW!
It’s time to wake up world and taste, feel and love one another again living each moment like it’s the last
I will be performing my new song – Don’t Copy Me for the first time with my back up dancers GANG OF SHE and let me just say, I haven’t been this excited about a show in a while…
Prepare to have your eyes and ears awakened!
African Mayonnaise is my favourite music video ever… When you take what we do to the people on the street, it’s the real life moments which are the best. You can’t script and make that shit up, it just goes to show how scared general society are of anything different and visually expressive in the flesh, hiding behind their screens…
Let’s go freaks… CAN’T WAIT!!
During my last trip to Berlin, I made a fashion film with designer Jackie Taylor for her new collection full of Egyptianesque headdresses, mirror-balled bling and masks called Going for Gold: Beeeast and I were fully body painted in gold while a film crew from Arte Tv was interviewing me for a special on Tracks ***watch here***
Below are some of my favourite shots by Jacob Hopkins from the look-book along with the short film.
Enjoy the golden journey!
