DIRTY GIRLS PROJECT | KIRAN GHANDI

Liz rice McCray

HUNTER GATHERER – KIRAN GANDHI from DIRTY GIRLS PROJECT on Vimeo.

The bold, beautiful, black-haired Kiran Gandhi (drummer for M.I.A. and full time Harvard Business School student) inspired the house when she spoke at a TEDx in Brooklyn. Her talk was based on the philosophy she coined Atomic Living – which basically describes how the atoms of life and its moments collide and explode into spontaneous genius, where multiple interests can tie together and create more rather than less.  When life gives you the opportunity to “go” or to “do” Atomic Living says, “you have to” “because in that moment…you never know what can happen,” says Kiran. She is the real Atomic Woman.

Dirty Girls Project approached Kiran after her talk, and she was totally game to collaborate. Dirty Girls Project is a new media platform devoted to the promotion of empowered, badass women of all ages by creating original content, synergistic partnerships and the production of collaborations (both digital and physical) around topics such as art, adventure, fashion, entrepreneurship—the bad, the rad and the weird.

 

With Kiran, Dirty Girls Project decided to reinvent the interview. Instead of sitting her down and asking questions, DGP walked her through the streets of Brooklyn and had her use found objects to create drum beats at the same time as getting to know her through organic and unexpected situations. Dirty Girls collected her beats, which were later mixed and used as the music in the video.

At the end of a very long day the Dirty Girls threw a third element into the video, a surprise visit to the Lower Eastside Girls Club. The whole girl gang was tired, Kiran was actually feeling sick, but that didn’t stop her. The second she stepped into the room with a class full of young girls, she fully lit the place up with a spontaneous drum session, encouraging the girls to find odd and weird objects like a Pringles can full of pens, or a sink faucet to use as instruments. She taught them about rhythms and beats, and how to think outside the box and be open to seeing the world in the way they want to see it instead of the way others say they should. She told the girls how she became the drummer for M.I.A, which is a story about a dream plus determination and saying “yes” to living Atomically.

 

Dirty Girls Project conceptualized and produced the video, which features Kiran Gandhi as the Featured Babe and which can be found in the In Babes We Trust section of the website www.dirtygirlsproject.com. The music is original and will be released for downloads in the near future. The proceeds will go towards more collaborations that feature rad women doing inspirational things and delivering a message of courage and empowerment. Follow us on Instagramfacebooktumblir.

“I’ve returned to these pictures of the band many times over the years, and when I’ve done so they take me right back to the time. I still listen to their debut album now and it doesn’t sound dated. In a similar way, these images, though very much of their era, haven’t aged at all. Which reflects how timeless the Sex Pistols were.”
- Dennis Morris

The Bollocks, co-published by Zero+ Publishing and The Seventh Letter, offers an exclusive glimpse into the world of The Sex Pistols. Internationally recognized photographer Dennis Morris visually records both behind-the scenes material and classic stage footage alongside intimate portraits and documents an iconic movement in the history of music with many never-before-seen images.

It was Morris’ photos of Marley that caught the eye of the young Johnny Rotten. Rotten, a massive reggae fan, had long admired Morris’ work and requested that he take the first official shots of the Sex Pistols upon signing to Virgin Records. Morris’ association with the band fitted perfectly in the plan devised by legendary music Svengali, Malcolm McLaren. Morris witnessed the raw beginnings and rise of a group that would eventually become pioneering musicians behind the Punk movement of the late 1970s.

The Sex Pistols soon learned to trust Morris completely, allowing him unrestricted access to their strange and chaotic existence. For a year, Morris trailed the band, taking hundreds of undisputed classic shots of the band. The only photographer to put the Sex Pistols fully at ease in front of the lens, Morris’ work with the band established, their public image and strong lasting identity.

Morris’ images also capture the visceral hysteria of the fans and unforgettable fashions as well as pivotal moments in the band’s history.

Limited to an edition of 200 with over 45 iconic images and two signed prints on Kodak Endura Metallic photo paper by Dennis Morris, The Bollocks, priced at US $ 800.00, provides both an extraordinary view into the intoxicating world of The Sex Pistols as well as a chapter of history charting fashions, music and trends of the 1970s for passionate fans and intrigued onlookers alike.

‘ EROS – DESIRE – DE SIDUS – OF THE STAR ‘ A collaborative painting by Alexis Diaz and Faith47 produced for ‘The art of Collaboration’ at Wynwood Walls, Miami.

Liz rice McCray

The image reflects on the different layers of sensuality.
Eros is the greek god of love and desire, the word desire comes from the latin word ‘de sidus’ which means ‘of the star’
The intensity of how we look to a partner to complete us somehow.
Perhaps sensual desires could be reflective of a deep yearning to return to the source.
