The concept of luxury is ever changing — from era to era, and from person to person. For some, luxury exists in material form, as something to desire and long for, while for others it is more intangible, the attainment of time, space, peace and quiet. In issue 36 Elephant speaks with seven young artists and designers who play with opulent, excessive aesthetics as a way to question the world around them.

More about this issue

Elephant’s cover artist, Maisie Cousins, discusses ideas around luxury and food, exploring consumption and gastronomy through the lens of desire, class and community.

In the Encounters section the magazine meets German painter Katharina Grosse and Japanese photographer Hiroshi Sugimoto, and visits John Loker and Emily Mayer, the British artist couple who live and work in an intriguingly independent studio set-up. Issue 36 also feature the paintings of Cristina BanBan and Jules de Balincourt in our two Paper Galleries, and catch up with the New Establishment, featuring interviews with rising stars Zach Blas and Summer Wheat.

In Journal, Hettie Judah discusses the notion of fully automated luxury communism, and Alice Bucknell explores the latest trend for luxury art spaces (on heat)—with shopping malls, galleries and concept stores all rolled into one.

More about Elephant

Direct, spontaneous and multi-disciplinary, Elephant aims to survey the international contemporary art scene with more energy and depth than any other magazine in print or online.

Since its inception in 2009, the magazine has been dedicated to capturing the sensual pleasure of art and offers readers an ideal platform to experience it in print, pairing arresting images with original and independent research in award-winning design.

The writing is eloquent and opinionated rather than rhetorical and theoretical, favouring in-depth analysis over extensive referencing.
