Henrik Vibskov, Multi-Hyphenate
“Art is part of the collection and the collection is part of the art,” Henrik Vibskov told us. Case in point: The graphic works on paper he’s showing at Berlin’s Pool Gallery, beginning today, will also appear on the textiles of his Fall 2010 collection, debuting next week in Copenhagen. “I basically let my brain go through its messy journeys with suspicious approaches,” he says of his process. “I compare art making to jazz music or free-styling. It is all about improvisation.” Those messy journeys have taken him from visual art to fashion to music and everywhere in between, and his personas—at least according to the man himself—are just as far-ranging. “I think I’m Swedish in a Danish way but with a Norwegian approach,” he says. We won’t even try to interpret that. But for the record, he’s from Denmark.
