> DESCRIPTION

 

The artistic vision is an integral of Walter Van Beirendonck's process. It affects all spectrums of the designer's work from graphics to his experimentation with fashion as well as mutation and crafts that he applies to the body of the wearer. This is a clear validation of the designer's pursuit in answering a major contemporary artistic question: That of the place, function and future of the body.

Walter produced two editions in fabric (gun and butterfly) in 2006 especially for Galerie Polaris. Which were presented at the Brussels art fair.

In Walter Van Beirendonck's first solo exhibition organised by Galerie Polaris (commencing 10th January 2009), the journey in pursuit of answering this question is made the theme while making it contemporary in context with art and design.

The exhibition takes form as the artefacts excavated from the tomb of Walter Van Beirendonck in the year 2357. The exhibition includes an installation of the artist's own sarcophagus, various objects discovered in the tomb as well as 40 flags to signify the collections of the artist's career so far.

Walter Van Beirendonck invites us into his universe guided by his pretext as well as his well known irony, which both entertain and are unexpected.

Fashion designer and one of the members of the renowned Antwerp six, Walter Van Beirendonck's work can be found in shops around the world as well as in various exhibitions.
