Where form meets function

Helmut Lang is Back. The fashion designer has shaped many trends during his time at the Helmut Lang label, many of which we only see now becoming big, showing his vision and understanding of the matter. The fashion designer has since become an artist and Hannover in Germany is celebrating a solo exhibition entitled, “Alles Gleich Schwer.”

“Drawing on references as diverse as the folkloric rites of maypole ceremonies and the exploration of surrogate skin, Lang has created a series of installations, objects and possibilities that integrate an intimate knowledge of the human form with the personal mythologies and abstract arrangements of the world at large.”

In collaboration with Absolut Vodka, the exhibition shows photographs, multimedia installations, sculptures and much more by the artist. “Alles Gleich Schwer” will be on view at the kestnergesellschaft August 31st – November 2nd. (via artschoolvets)
