Iris van Herpen -
Sculpting the Senses

Immersive soundtrack for exhibition

29 November 2023 to 28 April 2024
@ Musée des Arts décoratifs, Paris.

The musée des Arts décoratifs pays tribute to Dutch fashion designer Iris van Herpen, now recognized as one of the most avant-garde figures of her generation. Organized as an immersive and sensory exploration into the designer’s universe, this retrospective merging fashion, contemporary art, design and science, revolves around eight themes that identify the very essence of van Herpen’s body of work.

At the heart of this immersive journey lies an extraordinary collaboration with sound artist Salvador Breed, whose rich sonic tapestry adds a new dimension to the retrospective.

Breed's sonic reverie draws inspiration from the fusion of technology, nature, and human creativity that defines Iris van Herpen's aesthetic. The result is an audio landscape that mirrors the ethereal and otherworldly qualities inherent in van Herpen's fashion.

The sonic contribution not only enhances the exhibition but also serves as an independent work of art, echoing the boundary-pushing spirit of Iris van Herpen herself.
