HENZEL STUDIO is pleased to announce the display of JWAN YOSEF, Electrical, 2019 and CALLE HENZEL, Caccini Raw (Instant Crush Edit), 2022 at Rossana Orlandi Gallery, Milan. Jwan Yosefs works explore both formalism and autobiographical themes. His subject matter plays around the notion of dualism, a constant search for approval and the process of an initiation. Working within the frame of in-between states, identities and the (un) importance of belonging. Our perception of medium and material is Yosef’s main concern. He consciously uses materials from different spheres— applying high status oil paint to low status acrylic glass. By combining a material commonly associated with fine arts with a plastic material normally found in construction, Yosef plays with the contrast between synthetic and authentic. For HENZEL STUDIO, Jwan Yosef created four designs based on his work with duct tape.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.
