Yard Koala @ Anarres | Milano

Un proverbio cinese dice che da una grande crisi nasce sempre una grande opportunità. 
La crisi è stata sicuramente la pandemia. L'opportunità è stata quella di poter dar 
nuova vita a uno spazio a Milano dedicato alla creatività. Il collettivo King Koala 
ha iniziato i lavori nel recupero di una vecchia litostampa in via Ripamonti 110. 
Dall'archivio, il gruppo ha collezionato una serie di poster dal design di pregio che 
non saranno mai più ristampati. Si tratta di una tiratura di soggetti di vario tipo, 
legati dal filo conduttore del prestigio nella stampa, nel nome del designer e nel ritorno 
alla materia fisica che è al centro della ricerca creativa di King Koala. 
I proventi della vendita di questi poster saranno divisi equamente tra 
King Koala per i lavori di ristrutturazione in litostampa e la libreria 
Anarres che gentilmente ci ospita. Di seguito i soggetti presenti con le misure. 
Per i prezzi si può chiedere in cassa.
A Chinese proverb says that a great opportunity always arises from a great crisis. 
The crisis was certainly the pandemic. The opportunity was to be able to give new life 
to a space in Milan dedicated to creativity. The King Koala collective has begun work on 
the recovery of an old litho print in via Ripamonti 110. From the archive, the group has 
collected a series of prestigious design posters that will never be reprinted. 
It is a variety of subjects, linked by the common thread of prestige in printing, 
in the name of the designer and in the return to physical matter that 
is at the center of King Koala's creative research. The proceeds from the 
sale of these posters will be split equally between King Koala for the 
litho-print renovations and the Anarres bookstore that kindly hosts us. 
Below are the subjects present with size. For prices you can ask at the cashier.

Red book / Roots sunset selection

What does roots music have to do with Luca Mata's red notebook? 
There is something profound that emerges from Luca's photos when the sun goes down. 
Light is obviously a fundamental element and its illusory presence, 
its flash brings back to those dusty hidden dancehalls where it was always hot, 
even in the motherfuncking winter. The words are from Luca Mata's RED BOOK, 
while the selection is 100% vinyl by RUDEBOY. 
We are in August 2020. 
Composition Books are almost ready.

Homemade video and selection.
100% vinyl, roots and dub in red light.

Welcome to the world of Alessandra Pace

Alessandra Pace is an independent artist who has embarked on an incredible personal journey 
on her photographic and aesthetic art. King Koala went to Pescara to visit her and together
they started thinking about an interesting project. A vision of space, a world in which
the action of the moment is consummated by fixing itself in the memory of something that 
is external to everything else. From the depths of her living, Alessandra reflects everything
she wants and desires. Like a prism, several enveloping space notebooks will be created, 
which will collect some of the artist's best shots. 
We have beautiful things for our fall.

Lockdown Midnight Vibes

_selection: Rudeboy Jaco 
_words: Luca Matarazzo 

I had to move as soon as time allowed. 
It was an alienating, surreal, science fiction film situation. 
In this lysergic climate, Luca Mata's Composition Books, 
the first true King Koala production, took shape. 
During the tough lockdown of 2020, in Milan, 
I spent the last few days in my old home completely alone. 
By arranging my vinyl collection, I came up with a form 
of musical tribute (eucalyptus). 
Toughest sound, 100% vinyl.

bookstores around Italy. 
I mean, it's 300 copies. Sexy, don't you think?

New Koala in the gang

Meuri has the same charm that Turin’s 
rappers had in the 90s. Something crazy. 
He arrives, smiles, smashes and leaves. 
Needless to understand what happened 
and however you like it. You want more.

Of course Luca Mata was there too.
