Bart Hess - Future Bodies, 2007-2017
Dutch designer Bart Hess, who became widely famous with his Slime Dress for Lady Gaga, focuses on the cutting edge of design, fashion, and visual art. In the past ten years he has presented a variety of projects in which the relationship between man and material, nature and technology plays a central role. The starting point in the work of Bart Hess is the human body, which he always dresses in a different way, distorts or decorates in a way that has very little to do with fashion or styling. High-tech materials fuse with the model’s bodies. What looks like digital animation is actually a filmed performance in a latex suit.
This publication was produced to accompany the 2017 exhibition Future Bodies - Bart Hess at Stedelijk Museum 's-Hertogenbosch. Includes an interview with Bart Hess by the curator of the exhibition, art historian Frederic Baas.
