You’ve got some neck

His collection on show at the Galerie des Galeries space is all about interpreting the neck through tubes and pipes, representing the anatomy in various sense-prickling forms including walks through an unsettling chamber full of hanging bird necks and a disorientating section of spinning tunnels...

Henrik Vibskov seems to have one of those brains that can fire its synapses at anything – give him a ukulele and the sheet music and he’d probably be able to knock out a fair rendition of When I’m Cleaning Windows within half an hour. Pure speculation of course – it’s true that when the Danish fashion designer and multi-media artist is not making this exhibition style art, he’s dancing, acting and writing music, but probably not on a ukulele. Recently he’s been expending his considerable creativity on Neck Plus Ultra, his first solo show in Paris.

A graduate of Central St Martin’s, Vibskov has already shown his work in such celebrated venues as PS1 – Moma in New York, the Institute of Contemporary Art in London, Palais de Tokyo in Paris and Kiyomizu-Dera Temple in Kyoto, His collection on show at the Galerie des Galeries space is all about interpreting the neck through tubes and pipes, representing the anatomy in various sense-prickling forms including walks through an unsettling chamber full of hanging bird necks and a disorientating section of spinning tunnels. Stick your neck out and give it a look – the exhibition is running until 4th May.
