Martin Klimas transforms Dior, YSL, Hermes and Louis Vuitton silk scarves into art

High-quality silk scarves from establishments like Dior, YSL, Hermes or Louis Vuitton provide the thematic background for the new photo series ‘Foulard’ by Martin Klimas. Their nature oddly ambivalent between two- and three-dimensionality, these scarves are themselves subject to an identity crisis situated between object and picture. The silk scarves on display here not only hold a mirror up to the last 50 years of fashion—Klimas deploys scarves from the 1960s up to the present day—in their own way they also stylistically reflect the art of the time. ‘Foulard’ testifies, on the one hand, to half a century of fashion history, while at the same time, via the most advanced camera technique, lends the scarves a visual presence they never before enjoyed. ’Foulard’ will be on exhibition at COSAR HMT in Düsseldorf this November.
