Pippy Houldsworth Gallery is very excited to be presenting a special commission in The Box by one of the world's most highly respected and successful avant-garde fashion designers and artists, Hussein Chalayan. Chalayan's experimental installation, Rise, featuring his new collection, AW13 transformer dresses, is one of the most unique propositions for The Box to date.
Chalayan works across the disciplines of art and fashion interchangeably, with an interest in the performative body and in the construction of cultural identity. He was awarded British Designer of the Year in 1999 and 2000, and represented Turkey at the 51st Venice Biennale in 2005. His recent solo exhibitions include those at Design Museum, London; Lisson Gallery, London; Galerist, Istanbul; Istanbul Modern; and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo. He has also exhibited at the Victoria & Albert Museum, London; Museum Bellerive, Zürich; Kunstmuseum, Wolfsburg; and the Royal Academy of Arts, London. Chalayan will present new work at Venice Biennale 2013.
