FUORISALONE MILAN: ROSSANA ORLANDI X CALLE HENZEL

HENZEL STUDIO is pleased to announce a site-specific display at GALLERIA ROSSANA ORLANDI, one of Europe’s most important design galleries, featuring select designs from Calle Henzel signature collection FROZEN CUT.Nausta Silver Frozen Cut is based on scientific experiments exposing rugs to the harsh swedish environment, resulting in design characteristics attributed to erosion; raw distressed free-form shapes and irregular surfaces.
Calle Henzel is a multimedia artist. His paintings, collages and photomontages have as a result of early textile experimentation been translated into a vast series of rug designs. He has over the years cultivated an independent standing and business model that has allowed him uncompromised artistic freedom. His practice is a continuous reflection of what is experienced and perceived through subjective cultural impulses. The unique characteristics of his pieces lend a contemporary and enduring quality to his work, blending the abstract and figurative, often searching for a constant interplay between the sublime and the intense. His organic and experimental process, which involves elements of intuition, chance and accident, is something that continues to breathe into the making of his art. Calle Henzel’s work has been shown in numerous solo exhibitions, group exhibitions and public installations worldwide. Calle Henzel has collaborated with some of the most prominent names in contemporary art, including; Nan Goldin, Richard Prince, Juergen Teller, Marilyn Minter, Jack Pierson, Helmut Lang, Anselm Reyle, Douglas Gordon Richard Phillips and the Andy Warhol Foundation For The Visual of Arts.
