IRIS VAN HERPEN. SCULPTING THE SENSES

Italiano (Italian)

Until April 28, 2024
Les Arts Décoratifs
107, rue de Rivoli
75001 Paris

On show at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs until April 28, 2024, the exhibition “Iris van Herpen. Sculpting the Senses” pays tribute to one of the most visionary designers of her generation. A pioneer in the use of new technologies in her discipline, Iris van Herpen transgressed conventional clothing norms, opening up to both traditional and future-oriented know-how.

Ranging from the micro to the macro, the exhibition explores the placement of the body in space, its relationship to clothing and the environment, and its future in a rapidly changing world. A selection of more than 100 haute couture garments by Iris van Herpen is displayed alongside contemporary artworks by Philip Beesley, Collectif Mé, Wim Delvoye, Rogan Brown, Kate MccGwire, Damien Jalet and Kohei Nawa, Casey Curran and Jacques Rougerie, as well as design creations by Neri Oxman, Ren Ri, Ferruccio Laviani and Tomáš Libertíny, and pieces from the natural sciences such as corals and fossils that create a unique resonance with the historical pieces. The exhibition is presented in the Christine & Stephen A. Schwarzman Rooms.
