Inspired by Brazilian artist Hélio Oiticica's Parangolés (1964-79), Fritz Haeg's interlocking triangular knitted wearable sculptures - combo cape/caftan/scarf/shawl/vestment/wrap - are to be worn in public formations.
Fritz recently sat down with Michael Gervais to talk a little bit about the new work.
My last day in Guanzhou started out with a visit to the Fang Suo lifestyle store. The space is immense but somehow it manages to feel very cozy. Now that can not be easy to achieve. In addition to the fashion, home design, books, toys, cafe, plants, movies, exhibitions, there are also conferences with experts in various fields including but not exclusively: writers, photographers, architects, humanitarians... A beautiful concept by Mr. Mao. I left my mark on the wall.
