Bundled up like a bratwurst in a bun – dievca walked home from work on Wednesday
and caught sight of these two pieces of Artwork in an empty gallery.
They made her stop and smile.
One of the Gallery workers stuck his head out the door and said the show opened the next day.
dievca missed the cocktail opening on Thursday,
but will ask her Master to join her for a “looksee” at the gallery, next week.
If you cannot make it to 10th Avenue before the March closing – here’s the catalog for the
Connor Brothers’ Show,”A Dangerous Idea” :

dievca ran into a collection of leather goods from Todd Pendu & Zana Bayne called, “Magnum Opus” SS14. she purchased two items: a bracelet and a necklace which she modified slightly to make it a leather collar. How? she added holes at the buckles to tighten it and removed the attached triangle piece so Master could attach His lead.
The term “Post-Fetish” was coined by Todd Pendu as “decontextualizing traditional fetish gear into aesthetic accessories to be incorporated into everyday wear”.
Originally, dievca was focused on the person in the co-collaboration whose name was on the worked leather, Zana Bayne. But, she starting looking deeper into the gorgeous work of co-Creative Director, Todd Pendu after viewing some of his photographs.

“I am a self-described ‘Duchampian Punk’ and a proponent for Libertine Culture. I work independently outside the Establishment. My art doesn’t always fit in to convenient aesthetic categories. I’m interested in personal freedom and expression. I do what I want. I create for those outside society – for those who live by their own rules – not for everyone, but for everyone else.” – Todd Pendu

The original was slated for a charity auction benefiting women’s shelters. The auction was canceled by the organizers making it available. It is matted (3″)and signed by myself and the model. Click here to purchase.

A fun way to investigate the neighborhoods of NYC would be to find the local Coffee Shops that are original to the City. dievca is sure it would be tricky and take a lot of planning + subway travel, but perhaps using these coffee cup posters from Knowlita would help:
Posters of the Coffee Cups of NYC, Knwolita and Henry Hargraves and Massimo Mongiardo
Hmmm, dievca just figured out that we will have to use the digital options as a guide because the limited edition prints are sold out…bummer.
