: Helmut Lang – Making it Hard :

Helmut Lang, the name in the fashion industry retired from fashion six years ago. but now, the Austrian-born but NYC-based multi-creative turned his attention to art. this “Making it Hard” exhibition The Fireplace Project in East Hamptons outside New York – he shredded his entire archive, after donating the rest of his collected work to worldwide fashion, design and contemporary art collections, to make 16 sartorial sculptures. mixing his own history, original claim to fame and a current back mirror view of his past as a fashion designer with his personal experiences of late and this relatively new art form makes the exhibition fundamentally interesting for fans of Helmut Lang, both as an artist and as a designer… fans, if you missed it, feel it here…
