Henrik Vibskov

Exhibition in Paris
Posted by Gestalten—02/2013

From February 27th to May 4th 2013, Galerie Des Galeries Lafayette invites creator Henrik Vibskov to stage his first solo show in Paris: Neck Plus Ultra. The opening will take place on February 26th.

The title of the exhibition is a play on words between the latin motto "nec plus ultra", meaning "nothing farther beyond" and the word neck as an anatomical reference to the neck-like objects, making up parts of this exhibition. The word neck also makes up the name for the Henrik Vibskov A/W 2013 collection, The Stiff Neck Chamber (fashion show in Paris on January 17th, 2013). With a poetic, playful and strange tone, he introduces us to what inspires and influences him and builds a personal atmosphere the visitor dives in. Among various colours and geometrical shapes and a refine work on textile, the artist mixes the use of visual, audio, and tactile senses together into one exhibition. You will
go from a stiff neck chamber consisting of bird necks hanging down from the ceiling to a hypnotic walk through spinning tunnels. It provides a whole ultra-stimulating experience: going from one state to another.
