Henrik Vibskov Gets Paris Solo Exhibition!
The Maison du Danemark on Paris’ Champs-Elysées is celebrating the eclectic work of Henrik Vibskov, starting tomorrow!
The avant-garde Danish designer and artist will stage a solo exhibition at the country’s cultural centre, which he will have free rein to transform for the occasion, from May 11 to July 16. The exhibit will showcase Vibskov’s multiple means of expression, including his fashion designs, sculpture, video and installation work. Renowned for his whimsical, imaginative catwalk shows, inspired by his passion for art, dance and theatre as well as fashion, the exhibition has been conceived as a full immersion into his creative world.
The exhibition will house an assortment of his ‘organic’ sculptures, alongside video installations, excerpts from his catwalk sets, pictures and fashion creations. Among them, items from the Spring/Summer 2017 collection surrounded by dozens of breast sculptures, those of the Autumn/Winter 2016 collection displayed with a set of tribal pictures, some gigantic 3D items from the Autumn/Winter 2014 collection, and a selection of ‘mask dresses’ from the Summer 2015 collection will be artistically featured.
This is not the first time Vibskov will be showing in Paris, previously the designer has been invited to exhibit at the Tokyo Palace and at the Galeries Lafayette department store, as part of the ‘Neck Plus Ultra’ exhibition in 2013.
Henrik Vibskov has also exhibited at PS1-MoMA in New York, at the Institute of Contemporary Art in London, at Washington’s Textile Museum and at venues in Rotterdam, Kyoto, Milan and Helsinki.
