An der Vernissage des Modedesigners Henrik Vibskov in der kölner Galerie Ruttkowski 68 konnte ich am letzten Freitagabend leider nicht teilnehmen, und so war ich froh, daß am darauf folgenden Sonntag zusätzlich zum „Big blow up Thing“ geladen wurde. Ich erwartete etwas Buntes, Amorphes, Aufblasbares und wurde nicht enttäuscht. Bereits auf dem Weg zur eigentlichen Ausstellung sah ich durch eine Einfahrt ein riesiges blassgrünes Gebilde über einen Hinterhof wabern. Tatsächlich war die gigantische Amöbe, die sich mit ihren tausend Armen dort aufblähte, wieder in sich zusammenfiel und dem Betrachter bauchig entgegenwallte, Vibskovs Werk. Ursprünglich als Laufsteg für dessen Modenschauen konzipiert, schlug das ventilatorbetrieben Fabelwesen die Brücke zwischen Vibskovs Mode und dessen gerahmten Plastiken, die noch bis zum Mai 2012 in der Galerie Ruttkowski 68 zu sehen sind.

Ähnlich amorph aber insgesamt viel kompakter wecken auch diese mit all ihren Noppen und Bortsten Assoziationen von Meeresbewohnern. Tatsächlich war es Vibskovs Anliegen, eine Metapher für alltägliche menschliche Probleme zu finden, wofür ihm das Bild der zerrissenen Strumpfhose am geeignetsten schien. Vibskov experimentierte mit Bauschaum, den er in Nylonstrumpfhosen füllte und beobachtete fasziniert, wie das Material durch die Maschen quoll und ein ähnliches Eigenleben führte, wie die freundliche Riesenamöbe. In Rot, Schwarz und zartem Türkis lackiert, sieht man den Plastiken ihr Ausgangsmaterial kaum an. Da die Ausstellung als Retrospektive anlässlich Vibskovs zehnjährigem Labeljubiläum angelegt ist, sind zusätzlich zu den Plastiken auch Holzschnitte aus der Zeit der Jahrtausendwende zu sehen.
Insgesamt legt Henrik Vibskov großen Wert auf die Verschmelzung verschiedener Kunstformen und verbindet die Bereiche Mode, Musik und Kunst zu einem Gesamtkonzept.

18th-century English painter Thomas Gainsborough once famously said of his competitor Joshua Reynolds, “Damn him, how various he is!” 21st-century designer Henrik Vibskov could provoke similar bursts of envy among his own peers. While the multi-talented Dane is best known for his eponymous fashion label, he is also a fine artist and a musician: he is the drummer of electronic band Trentemøller and exhibits worldwide in museums and galleries.

A 2001 graduate of London’s renowned Central Saint Martins, Vibskov takes an individual approach when it comes to art. What initially appears childlike, spontaneous and carefree is in fact thoroughly elaborated. Vibskov expects his viewers to be jaded, self-aware and savvy, and his artworks question their prevailing assumptions.

‘Panda People,’ his 2009 work, shows the endangered animal as a cuddly creature, but it could also serve as a warning against their extinction, and possibly – as the title intimates – the end of mankind itself. Vibskov’s drawings and installations reveal mesmerizing universes and sets of logic. Going beyond postmodernism, they could even be classified as metamodernism.

El diseñador de moda danés Henrik Vibskov no es un diseñador de moda común y corriente. Describir Henrik Vibskov simplemente como un diseñador de moda sería quedarse corto.

Como un artista polifacético, músico apasionado, escenógrafo innovador, y con una etiqueta del mismo nombre que marca tendencias de moda , está a la vanguardia de una nueva generación de creativos de múltiples tareas.

Como es indicativo de este nuevo tipo de diseñador de renacimiento, Vibskov ha logrado establecer un estilo de firma único que es reconocible a través de todas las diversas disciplinas en las que trabaja.

Multifacético, escenógrafo y músico tiene un estilo único, extravagante, fuera de lo común. Ver uno de sus desfiles de moda tiene que ser un verdadero placer.

No nos extraña que haya publicado un libro, creo que quienes le siguen lo agradecen. No ha defraudado su presentación en Berlín, para la presentación del libro, como no podía ser de otro modo, Vibskov ha diseñado y coreografiado una actuación interesante, con un telón de fondo gráfico y dos actores incluidos.

HENRIK VIBSKOV
The name Henrik Vibskov is most commonly associated not only with a fashion label, but a multitude of twisted yet tantalising universes created in relation to each collection.
“The Transparent Tongue“, “The Stiff Neck Chamber“ and “The Shrink Wrap Spectacular“ are just a few titles of shows Henrik Vibskov has produced lately, each title referring to a different but equally mesmerising world and set of logic.
As a fashion designer Henrik Vibskov has produced over 20 mens (and later also womens) collections since he graduated from Central St. Martins in 2001, and he is currently the only Scandinavian designer on the official show schedule of the Paris Mens Fashion Week, which he has been since January 2003.
Since the beginning of his career Henrik has frequently been invited to and participated in festivals, contests and talks such as the Swiss Textile Awards 2003, Hyeres Festival 2003 & 2004, Expo 2005 Japan, the Noovo Festival 2007 in Santiago de Compostella, the LungA Art Festival in Iceland 2009 & 2010, the Notch Festival in Beijing in 2009, Gwangju Design Biennale in South Korea in 2011, the Rohsska Museum in Gothenburg 2011, and many more.
Although Henrik has a principle of never giving away clothes to celebrities for commercial purposes, people like M.I.A., Kanye West, Bjork, The Arctic Monkeys, Sigur Ros, Franz Ferdinand, MUM, Lou Reed, LCD Soundsystem or Devendra Banhart have all been spotted in Henrik Vibskov’s designs.
Between designing new collections biannually and creating the universes surrounding them, Henrik keeps himself occupied as the drummer at the moment with his own project Mountain Yorokobu signed to Fake Diamond Records and exhibiting at art museums and galleries around the world. Henrik has made exhibitions at PS1 – MoMA in New York, Palais de Tokyo in Paris, ICA in London, Zeeuws Museum in Holland, Kiyomizu-Dera Temple in Kyoto, Japan, Wilhelm Wagendfeld Haus in Bremen, NAI Nederlands Architectuur Instituut in Rotterdam, Holland, The Textile Museum, Washington, USA and Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris, in collaboration with Elmgreen & Dragset, just to name a few. In 2013 he presents solo exhibitions at Galleries Lafayette in Paris and Gammel Strand Museum in Copenhagen.
With visual artist Andreas Emenius he created an ongoing art project called ‘The Circular Series’, which they begun to work on in 2009. Like in their earlier collaboration ‘The Fringe Projects’, in this project the circle is used as a clarifier, or visual glue, linking all the projects to the same universe.
Henrik Vibskov’s collections are sold only through thoroughly selected shops across the globe. 10 Corso Como in Milan, Tom Greyhound in Seoul, RA in Antwerp, Magasin in Moscow, Club 21 in Singapore and his own Henrik Vibskov stores in Copenhagen and New York are a few of the most influential stores, but also countries in the burgeoning markets of the Middle East and Eastern Europe have embraced Henrik’s designs.
Throughout his career Henrik’s designs have won him prizes such as the Becks Student Future Prize 2000, Aarets Nye Navn 2003, Danish Design Council Award 2007, Brand of the Year DANSK Magazine Fashion Awards 2008, a Præmieringen from the Dansh Arts Foundation in 2009, the 2011 Soderberg prize, the highest value design prize in the world, as well as the Jury Prize at the Danish Fashion Awards in 2012.
Henrik Vibskov has frequently given lectures and been a jury member at institutions such as Central Saint Martins in London, The Istituto Europeo Di Design in Madrid and the Antwerp Royal Acadamy of Fine Art amongst others.
In 2012 a monograph of Henrik’s work was published by Gestalten.

Danish fashion designer Henrik Vibskov is not your ordinary fashion designer. His fashion designs could be described as avant garde, but they are only the tip of the iceberg. He is a multifaceted artist, stage designer and musician who has a unique, sort of wacky, offbeat style. Seeing one of his fashion shows must be a real treat. More of a performance art piece than a classic runway show.

This month a book of his work is due out titled, not surprisingly, Henrik Vibskov. For the Berlin book launch, Vibskov designed and choreographed an interesting performance with a graphic backdrop and two actors covered in the same pattern, performing odd tasks, such as sweeping into a dustpan, in very slow motion. Also not to be missed are his collaborations with Andreas Emenius, including The Fringe Projects and The Circular Series.

Créateur de prêt-à-porter pour hommes et femmes au style électrique et riche en couleur, le danois Henrik Vibskov n’a pas eu de mal à se hisser sur la scène de la mode à l’international.
Le danois Henrik Vibskov commence à travailler dans les arts visuels au Danemark, en France, en Allemagne et au Japon avant de se consacrer exclusivement à la mode. Il remporte le prix Smirnott International en 1996 et commence à travailler pour l’enseigne danoise Bruuns Bazaar avant de reprendre ses études.

Après un cursus à l’école de design et de mode Hillevi Van Deurs de Copenhague, il étudie à Central Saint Martins à Londres.
Il n’est même pas encore diplômé que la presse ne cesse de parler de son style audacieux, coloré et électrique. Diplômé en 2001, il fait fureur auprès des boutiques hype. Colette à Paris, The Pineal Eye à Londres, Midwest à Tokyo et Traffik à Moscou achètent sa première collection.
Depuis, avec son style graphique et anti-conformiste, Henrik Vibskov ne cesse de faire sensation lors des Fashion Week. Bravo!

Henrik Vibskov est diplômé de l’école Central St. Martins de Londres (2001), mais son art ne se limite pas à la mode : il est également musicien, réalisateur de films, plasticien – je me doute que c’est lui qui a dû réaliser les drôles d’installations de bois, des morceaux de meubles assemblés tels des portes-manteaux de bric et de broc, parmi lesquelles défilaient les mannequins -, dessinateur…
