FUORISALONE MILAN: CALLE HENZEL, CARL FREDRIK REUTERSWÄRD AND JWAN YOSEF AT ROSSANA ORLANDI GALLERY
Fuorisalone, Milan: HENZEL STUDIO is pleased to announce the inclusion of designs by Calle Henzel, Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd and Jwan Yosef at Rossana Orlandi Gallery.
The display features the unveiling of a new rug design by Calle Henzel titled Caccini Raw (Instant Crush Edit) at Rossana Orlandi Gallery. The design features a patchwork-like collage of designs and techniques that represents a remix of designs and production-techniques Calle Henzel created over the past twenty years. The organic and artistic process of Calle Henzel has been the driving force in the development of Henzel Studio’s designs. He has over the years in an uncompromised fashion challenged the traditional conventions of subject matter, shape, finishings and special treatments as a result of painstaking research that includes vintage treatments, intricate surface compositions and even natural erosion – methodologies that further blur the distinction between art and design.
HENZEL STUDIO is pleased to unveil a new rug design after the sculpture ”Non-Violence” by Swedish artist Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd at Rossana Orlandi Gallery. Now emblem for The Non-Violence Project, the rug design was developed in close collaboration and partnership with the non-profit organization. The sculpture was originally created by Reuterswärd as a memorial tribute to his friend John Lennon after he was shot and killed in New York City in 1980. The Non-Violence Project Foundation (NVP) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to inspire, motivate, and engage people on how to solve conflicts peacefully. It holds violence prevention and non-violence education programs for schools and sports clubs around the world. Sir Paul McCartney, Ringo Starr, and Yoko Ono are, among others, ambassadors of the Non-Violence Project. Our collaboration with The Non-Violence Project is an extension of our ongoing collaborations with some of the world’s most renowned contemporary artists and estates. We are proud to align ourselves with The Non-Violence project and contribute to their message of peace across the globe.
HENZEL STUDIO is pleased to present a site-specific display of Electrical by Syrian born Swedish artist Jwan Yosef at Rossana Orlandi. Jwan Yosef’s works explores both formalism and autobiographical themes, with a conceptual undertaking that queers the principles of modernist aesthetics. Yosef’s tactical use of abstraction serves opportunities to release entendres and challenge viewers to break from passive gazes towards a plurality of perspectives.
