HENZEL STUDIO is pleased to announce a virtual exhibition at Frozen Palms Gallery Los Angeles / Bastad, that brings to light one of Warhol’s most obscure and unknown works, while paying homage to his most iconic and popular subject; Marilyn Monroe. The exhibition features nine handmade rugs by Henzel Studio created in close collaboration with The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. Alongside these are virtual replicas of fourteen original Warhol paintings made available by The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, further contextualizing the artist’s accomplishments of both replicating, abstracting and deconstructing the recognizable subject. The rugs are based on a maquette Warhol created for an unrealized artists book. The handmademodel consists of thirty-eight octagonal pages, each a die-cut detail from Warhol’s print edition set of Marilyn Monroe dated 1967 that includes ten variations of the iconic star. Curated by Joakim Andreasson, the rugs were designed and appropriated into the media at hand through the unparalleled expertise and implementation of artist and Henzel Studio Founder Calle Henzel. Each page of the maquette has been re-appropriated and turned into a unique rug design, four of which are on view in this exhibition. The resulting designs and abstractions provide an unforeseen and detailed view of Warhol’s portrait of Monroe, where each rug serves as magnified close-ups through an octagon shaped lens. The maquette was discovered in Warhol’s Time Capsule 55 in 1994, one of 610 cardboard boxes he filled and dated from 1974 until his death in 1987. Referred to then as “Andy’s stuff”, they are filled with objects he accumulated from his daily life: gifts, collectibles, photographs, invitations, letters, magazines, newspapers, junk mail, business records and artwork. Today Warhol’s Time Capsules are known to be a diary of his everyday personal and professional life including Warhol’s artistic practice. In parallel, original Monroe portraits have been further deconstructed and appropriated by Calle Henzel, where he applied his signature design characteristics; freeform organic shapes, strategically placed holes, uneven punk-like fringes and elaborate surface treatments into five unique shapes. Four of these will be on view throughout the gallery. Fourteen virtual replicas of Warhol’s depictions of Monroe are represented in the exhibition. These include the Marilyn Diptych (1962), noted as one of the most influential pieces in Modern Art, The iconic Marilyn Portfolio featuring ten different silkscreens, Gold Marilyn Monroe (1962) and Gold Monroe (Tondo) (1962), silkscreened on gold canvases and finally The Two Marilyns (1962) composed of duo black and white repeat silkscreens of the actor. The exhibition is topped off with a two-piece free-from design by Calle Henzel of Monroe’s Lips appropriated from a lithograph by Warhol printed as part of a publication called 1¢ Life in 1964. The rug is placed next to a virtual replica of Marilyn Monroe’s Lips (1962), a silkscreendepicting 196 repeats of Monroe’s lips allowing an alternate and reduced representation of the subject. “The Foundation has been delighted to collaborate with Henzel Studio on this collection of distinctive hand made rugs which elegantly merge Calle Henzel’s signature treatments with rarely seen abstracted depictions of Marilyn created by Warhol.” Michael Dayton Hermann, The Andy Warhol Foundation for The Visual Arts

HENZEL STUDIO COLLABORATION HIGHLIGHT: JUERGEN TELLER

Image: Juergen Teller, self-portrait © Juergen Teller

P. 24


Juergen Teller is considered one of the most important contemporary photographers of our time and is one of the few artists who has managed to operate successfully both in the art world and at the centre of the commercial sphere. Teller entered the London photography scene via the music industry, taking photographs for record covers by artists such as Björk, Elastica, Elton John, New Order, Sinead O’Connor and Texas. Teller’s photographs first appeared in the late 80’s and included portraits of Kate Moss when she was just 15, spearheading the shift that was to follow in the representation of beauty and fashion. In the early 90’s he photographed Nirvana backstage and started a decade long relationship capturing the behind the scenes at Helmut Lang’s fashion shows. Teller’s provocative interventions in conventional celebrity portraiture are apparent in works such as a photograph of Victoria Beckham in which we only see her bare, high-heeled legs hanging over the sides of a Marc Jacobs shopping bag for the Spring Summer 2008 campaign. Other well-known examples include Vivienne Westwood reclining naked on a floral settee in a startling triptych, or the intimate portrait of Björk and her son shot in the Blue Lagoon. Subverting the conventional relationship of the artist and model, Teller often pictures himself as the muse in his photographs, seen in the Louis XV series with Charlotte Rampling, or in his controversial shoot in the French landscape with Kanye and Kim Kardashian West for System magazine. Whatever the setting, all his subjects collaborate in a way that allows for the most surprising poses and emotional intensity.

P. 25

His personal work consists of capsuled series of intimate family moments, such as Keys to the House (2010-2012), photographed in the British countryside and Irene im Wald (2012), shot in the forest with his mother in his hometown of Erlangen, Germany. Driven by a desire to tell a story in every picture he takes, Teller has shaped his own distinct and instantly recognizable style, which combines humor, self-mockery, candid honesty and raw emotion.

“I’ve known Vivienne Westwood for ages, and we’ve been working together on her advertising campaign for many years. I was always keen on her and her look, her courage and her attitude, not least where politics are concerned. She’s not actually interested in photography at all, but when I asked her to do some nude pictures, she trusted me completely and thought the idea of doing them now, at the age of 68, was really lovely. I’m delighted how coquettish and youthful and sexually attractive Vivienne looks in the pictures - and she really is all of those things.” - Juergen Teller Previous page, installation view, Austere, Los Angeles: JUERGEN TELLER, Vivienne Westwood, 2009, Edition of 50 + 1 AP, Numbered, Accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity, Hand knotted, Persian weave, 200 x 305 cm (79 x 120 Ins), Wool & Silk, Custom size upon request For HENZEL STUDIO COLLABORATIONS, Teller re-appropriated a photograph of Vivienne Westwood.

HENZEL STUDIO is pleased to present a new collection of contemporary runners based on some of our unique signature works, designed by Calle Henzel. All designs in the collection can be adapted to the customer’s specific size requirements.

Calle Henzel 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. Calle Henzel has collaborated with some of the most prominent names in contemporary art including, among others; Richard Prince, Nan Goldin, Mickalene Thomas, Lawrence Weiner, Douglas Gordon, Andelm Reyle, Juergen Teller and artists foundations including Tom of Finland Foundation and The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts. His collaborations and own designs has been exhibited at prominent venues such as MOCA, Katonah Museum of Art, Boca Raton Museum of Art, Rossana Orlandi Gallery and The Goss-Michael Foundation.

HENZEL STUDIO is pleased to announce the inclusion of Sanford Bigger’s handcrafted rug in an upcoming auction (Q4); Design for good by ELLE DECOR in partnership with Christie’s New York. Proceeds will benefit Housing Works, a New York City based non-profit fighting the twin crises of AIDS and homelessness. The rug is highlighted with a full-page feature in the March issue of ELLE DECOR written by Kate McGregor, photographed by Jens Mortensen, and styled by Laurel J. Benedum. Extract: ”I thought the material might be able to catch the nuances of the original drawing” he explains (Sanford Biggers). The finished hand-knotted, Persian weave rug, titled Ibeji (Duet), features twin carved figures from Yoruba culture that are thought to possess spiritual powers. As in the tradition with Henzel’s ongoing artist series, Biggers received creative carte blanche. ”The invited artists are free to disregard all design priciples and rules” says Joakim Andreasson, the program’s curator. ”It’s essential for them to think of this as an artistic process rather than a design one.”

HENZEL STUDIO is pleased to announce the display of Richard Prince at Rossana Orlandi Gallery, Milan. The rug is featured in the gallery’s spring exhibition.

Richard Prince has since the late 70’s filtered imagery from mass media, advertising and entertainment, and through reappropriation turned them into original works, thereby redefining concepts of authorship, ownership and artistic context. Applying his understanding of representation and the complex transactions involved in the making of art, he evolved a unique signature that is unquestionably his own. His selection of mediums and subject matters, as well as his practice of cropping, editing, and sequencing of images, suggest a uniquely individual logic. Prince refocuses us on the ordinary; he gives it to us repeatedly, in serial form, until it becomes “extra ordinary”. Prince’s deliberate redundancy, and incessant return of the same, plays with our sense of reality. By selecting and re-presenting the already contrived image as a carefully cropped and framed artwork, he brings us closer to its essential fiction, making it more real in the process. Chronicler of American subcultures and vernaculars and their role in the construction of American identity, he has explored the depths of racism, sexism, and psychosis in mainstream humor; the mythical status of cowboys, bikers, customized cars, soft porn and celebrities. Prince focuses on themes and iconography that, when seen altogether, express an incisive commentary of present-day America. For Henzel Studio, Prince created a unique design informed by a series of collages featuring numbers. Other available Henzel Studio artists featured at Rossana Orlandi Gallery: Ashley Bickerton, Calle Henzel, Carsten Höller, Marilyn Minter, Mickalene Thomas and Jwan Yosef.

SPECIAL PROJECT HENZEL STUDIO is pleased to present a collaboration with Videre Licet; Stefan Lawrence and Daniele Albright. The rug will be one of five unique pieces created based on Videre Licet’s MELTFORMS, a series of glass and metal light sculptures, as an exploration of materiality and luminosity.

“I was born and raised in Los Angeles, so my work is informed by California’s history of modernism, which emphasized minimal forms, and its light and space movement, which emphasized perception and sensory experience. Those are my foundations, but I interpret them through a contemporary sensibility that values asymmetry and other subtle interventions and disruptions of convention.” - Daniele Albright

Our studio Calle Henzel has over the past twenty years translated his artistic practice as painter and collage artist into the medium at hand, positioning Henzel Studio as one of the most progressive luxury rug brands in the world. While remaining at the forefront of design, Henzel Studio’s foundation and raison d’être lies in the artisanal production of local communities in Nepal and India that dates back thousands of years. HENZEL STUDIO COLLABORATIONS, is an exclusive collection of limited edition art rugs realized in close collaboration with some of the world’s most notable contemporary artists. The program was conceived with no regard to the past state of art and design. Contrary to common associations to rugs — an object that inherently possesses a strong sense of history and references to defined artistic and aesthetic movements — the purpose of this project is to provide a new and extraordinary channel for art to be made available through an alternate medium. Via a curated lens, a new context is shaped to reflect diverse dynamics of contemporary art and design. The inclusion of the participating artists in this program was, in part, inspired by Calle Henzel’s independent voice and stature in the world of art and design. Since the launch of ’Henzel Studio Collaborations’ at Barneys New York Madison Avenue in 2014 during Frieze Art Fair, Henzel Studio has developed art rugs with over thirty leading contemporary artists including Ashley Bickerton, Sanford Biggers, Olaf Breuning, Scott Campbell, Leo Gabin, Nan Goldin, Douglas Gordon, Carsten Höller, Jonathan Horowitz, Robert Knoke, Helmut Lang, Linder, Bjarne Melgaard, Marilyn Minter, Tim Noble & Sue Webster, Tony Oursler, Richard Phillips, Jack Pierson, Richard Prince, Anselm Reyle, Wilhelm Sasnal, Juergen Teller, Mickalene Thomas, Lawrence Weiner, Jwan Yosef and AVAF. Via ’Henzel Studio Heritage’ extensive collections have also been developed in collaboration with artist estates, that to date include Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts and Tom of Finland Foundation.
