As it turns out, when Helmut Lang left his eponymous label years ago, he reinvented himself as an artist. And the man had his first solo show in New York at a gallery on the Bowery this winter. Being a huge fan of his design aesthetic - he basically shaped what will forever be known as the 90s minimalism movement - I obviously had to make my way downtown to go discover his new installation.
It was incredibly fascinating and absolutely what you would think that mister Lang's art works would look like. He created these mind-blowing sculptures with a ton of strange, various raw materials that were molded into various industrial casts. It's difficult to explain, so I urge you to read about it here. Sadly, the exhibition ended this past weekend, but if you ever get the chance to see his art, may I suggest that you to jump at the chance.
While I had planned on visiting the gallery before the end of its run, my man and I decided to head over there after a leisurely Friday afternoon lunch, to which I randomly happened to be wearing a Helmut Lang dress. Perhaps my subconscious knew I was going to end up there that day?
