Pedderzine Uncatalogued

The culmination of 10 previous issues, the 11th edition of the Pedderzine - Exhibitionist - explores the creative world of On Pedder and its seasonal edits over the past five years. Since its inception, Pedderzine has delivered thought provoking imagery that epitomizes the irreverence central to the On Pedder identity. Pedderzine’s adherence to artistic collaboration remains constant, exploring sensory natures through prominent visual editorial partnerships and photography. Exhibitionist invites the viewer to a collection of the most captivating images and scenes from the publication’s past issues. To bring the Pedderzine archives to life, On Pedder presents a pop up artspace at On Lan Street, curated by Shin Wong, wrapped inside an enigmatic box. On Pedder has invited Hong Kong’s power-duo video artists – Yamanyamo, to explore the magazine’s deeply conceptual roots through an innovative new media artwork. In additional to the exhibition, the Queen’s Road Central window of Joyce sets the stage to showcase the treasure trove at On Pedder.

Exhibition runs from September 21st–October 3rd , 2012 Inaugural Vernissage Opening on September 20th 2012 7 On Lan St, Central, Hong Kong


not magazine

Danielle picked this up from her friend's store Konzepp. Not Magazine from China is only 6 months old and has published the 4th issue by now. I was reading the editor's note which described how difficult it is for their small team to sustain and by far, already 3 staff have left the team remaining the core people who carries with them the ambition, the vision and the mission. I wish them a fruitful year of 2012 and persist to bring us abundant inspiration.

where you going?

Sometime earlier this Spring, two graphic designers from London stopped by Whitespace. Jamie Winder and Iain Hector toured South East Asia for a month to meet with fellow creatives and share ideas, experiences and opportunities. They have since put together a journal of their discoveries and conversations called Where You Going?

We gave them a copy of Creative City, our studio's creative insider guide and a Semi-Permanent Hong Kong goodie bag. It's made an appearance, along with all the wonderful things they've gathered on their travels, in CUTOUT Magazine from Malaysia. We are looking forward to seeing more. In the meantime, their Facebook page has updates and more images of their project.

crashing monocle

Last night we Whitespace team crashed Monocle's launch party at Lane Crawford in Pacific Place. Hong Kong is lucky to be one of the 3 cities (along with London and Los Angeles) to have the seasonal Monocle's shop in town. If you happened to miss out the good-looking crowd, free-flowing champagnes, Monocle x Comme des Garcons scents and the jazzy live band last night, check out the shop before May 23 and grab the latest issue 33 for Hong Kong: A Monocle City Survey!


glass magazine

UK-based glass magazine launched earlier this week in Hong Kong. Apparently the first issue is sold out everywhere, so I was fortunate to get to work and find a copy of one sitting on my desk (thanks to Michell). We've added this lovely edition, featuring our first lady of film, Maggie Cheung to our Premiere Issues Project along with some other recent additions including Jamie, Elephant and Freestyle. glassmagazine2

Wallpaper Tart

tart.jpg The new 'sex' issue of Wallpaper* has a naughty feature on tart carts. Tart cards are the means by which many London prostitutes advertise their services, regarded as items of accidental art and have something of a cult following. Step into almost any central London phone box and you can contemplate up to 80 cards inviting you to be tied, teased, spanked or massaged.

In conjunction with St Bride Library and Type, Wallpaper asked designers – from students to superstars – to find the tart hiding in every type and create their own graphic numbers.
