HENZEL STUDIO X HELMUT LANG AT TWENTIETH
HENZEL STUDIO is pleased to announce the display of Helmut Lang at TWENTIETH, Los Angeles. For Henzel Studio, Helmut Lang re-appropriated the shape of his sculpture Behind (2012). The surface and finishings have been crafted though different pile heights and material compositions. Born in Vienna 1956, Helmut Lang lives and works in New York and on Long Island. Lang walked away from a groundbreaking career in fashion to pursue his original true calling as an artist. Hailed for the rigorous and direct ethos of his forms and choice of materials, he has been met with similar acclaim for his art since leaving the fashion world for good. Since 2005, Lang has permanently turned away from creations in direct context with the human body, and has since turned his focus exclusively to two- and three-dimensional artworks which subtly allude to notions of the figure using different media such as sculpture, wall pieces, installations and videos, predominantly built from found and readily available materials.
