1. Cult Australian fashion label ksubi, toast the long awaited return of their coloured denim range, with a short film directed by Australian director Daniel Askill. kolors is a fume-fuelled, slow-motion battle between three colour-clad models and a trio of ‘80s muscle cars.

    With the ksubi team securing the very last sets of limited edition coloured tyres by Kumho available in Australia they then enlisted Askill and his team at Collider to fuse the vivid smoke with the spectral denim range. Models Bambi Northwood-Blythe, Cisco Gorrow and Heidi Harrington-Johnson act as modern-day matadors to the rumbling Ford's that attempts to hunt them down while the girls soar above the cars to an operatic soundtrack.

    Shot next to Sydney’s Kingsford Smith International Airport in barren industrial wasteland that car fanatics converge on after dark and with a Phantom camera, Askill captures each and every denim movement and smoke billow at 1500 frames per second.

  3. Daniel Askill's new exhibition furthers his exploration of ritual in a modern context. In this exhibition, Askill explores two major events of the last decade — the atrocities of 9/11 and the death of the 'King of Pop', Michael Jackson — and explores how the mass media landscape transforms human events into hyper-reality and, of course, money.

    The exhibition marks Askill's progression towards a feature-length film.
