To describe Henrik Vibskov as merely a fashion designer would be a vast understatement. As an artist, passionate musician, innovative stage designer, and head of his trendsetting eponymous fashion label he is at the vanguard of a new generation of creative multi-taskers. Gestalten.tv visited him in his Copenhagen studio for a chat about music, colors, the first comprehensive monograph of his remarkably versatile creative vision and (not) being your typical Scandinavian designer.

Henrik Vibskov is the first comprehensive presentation of his remarkably multifaceted creative vision. Many of the enlightening texts and project descriptions are written by Vibskov himself. They offer deeply personal insight into the twisted yet tantalizing worlds that he creates on a daily basis.

Forty years ago Henrik Vibskov was born in the backcountry of Denmark. Ten years ago he founded his fashion label...

The body – constant and indefinite at the same time – »bursts« the space already with its mere physicality, creating a first distinction between the self and its environment. Only the body movements create a reference to the otherwise invisible space.

The basic idea of the project is built upon the consideration of creating a moving sound sculpture from the recorded motion data of a real person. For our work we asked a Laura Keil, a berlin based dancer to interpret a musical piece – Kreukeltape by Machinenfabriek – as closely as possible with the movement of her own body. She was recorded by three depth cameras (Kinect), in which the intersection of the images was later put together to a...


Zhang Yimou Portrait by Red (Hong Yi)

Red (Hong Yi) [VIDEO]
metalocus, INÉS LALUETA
Zhang Yimou made ​​portraits in an original way. The proof in the sequel...made of bamboo sticks, pins and...socks?!

"Zhang Yimou is a famous Chinese film director, who directed the movies Hero, House of Flying Daggers, Memoirs of a Geisha, and also was the art director for the Beijing Olympics. Many of his movies reflect the beauty of the Chinese culture, through the use of bamboos and traditional costumes. I thought Zhang Yimou's portrait done in a Shanghainese laneway, with bamboo and laundry would be perfect for this project.

"Ganz Licht und frei in der Frankfurter Küche" [Light and Free in the Frankfurt Kitchen]

Por Darya von Berner. Ernst-May-Haus [Frankfurt] Germany. From 12/04 to 20/05, 2012.
metalocus, INÉS LALUETA
The installation Ganz Licht und frei in der Frankfurter Küche (Light and Free in the Frankfurt Kitchen), by Darya von Berner is a tribute to the architects Ernst May (1886-1970) and Margarete Schütte-Lihotzky (1897-2000). It takes place in the Ernst-May-Haus, the prototype house of the New Frankfurt, inside of the world’s only almost completely preserved Frankfurt Kitchen ‘in situ’.

The kitchen represented in its day, the introduction of a rational furniture design, electric light, as well as functionality and time savings in terms of movements.

Darya von Berner changes the design of this first ‘modern kitchen’ in her intervention, if lightbulbs replaced candles and kerosene lamps in former times, today a supple and flexible light tape is used to trace paths on floor and kitchen furniture surfaces.
