We’re pleased to announce that rugs by HENZEL STUDIO COLLABORATIONS artists ASHLEY BICKERTON and CARSTEN HÖLLER are now on view at Rossana Orlandi, Porto Cervo, Italy.
ASHLEY BICKERTON often combines photographic and painterly elements with industrial and found object assemblages. He is associated with the early 1980s art movement Neo-Geo. His work is in numerous international public and private collections, including The Museum of Modern Art, New York; Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles; Stedelijk Museum, Amsterdam; Hara Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo; Vancouver Art Gallery; Walker Art Center, Minneapolis; Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and the Tate Britain, London.
For Henzel Studio, Bickerton appropriated a photograph, with attributes of the subject determining the shape, pile height and material composition of the rug.
CARSTEN HÖLLER uses his training as a scientist in his work as an artist, concentrating particularly on the nature of human relationships. His works have been shown internationally over the last two decades, including installations at Tate Modern, MASS MoCA, Guggenheim Museum, Fondazione Prada, ICA Boston, Musée d’Art Contemporain and New Museum among others.
For HENZEL STUDIO, Carsten Höller created an interpretation of his Giant Multiple Mushroom sculptures, consisting of one-half Fly Agaric combined with one-quarter, one-eight, and one-sixteenth part of other mushroom species.
HENZEL STUDIO COLLABORATIONS, is an exclusive collection of limited edition art rugs realized in close collaboration with contemporary artists.Curated by Joakim Andreasson and designed in collaboration with Calle Henzel.
