In today’s world of social media, creative work can happily reach a global audience, but many artists find it creatively debilitating. Work is reduced to “content,” and everything becomes ephemeral and forgettable. We never truly see past the perfect frame or scratch the surface of what makes our favourite creatives tick.
At FAIRE, we want to create something joyfully physical, something to be treasured, a magazine you take your time to read and return to in moments of reflection.
Considered and intimate long-form stories that bring us into artists’ homes and creative spaces; stories of slowing down, creating with intention, community and collaboration, and examining the twists and turns of creative lives and how to finally find your voice.
Issue 4 celebrates turning adversity into beauty through creativity. Inside you'll find, handwoven textiles in Norway, botanical artists, a leather craftsman and illustrator couple, inside a Parisian 'cabinet of curiosities' boutique, and childhood forager turned professional chef and women's advocate, Sofia Bodovic Olsson.
