Heather Huey

Clic is pleased to present Heather Huey was Shot by Billy Kidd, a collaborative photographic project by New York-based artists Billy Kidd and Heather Huey. The opening will take place on Fashion’s Night Out, September 6th, 2012, from 6-8 pm.

Heather Huey was shot by Billy Kidd is a lyrical, sensually-charged photographic exploration of the complicity between the artist and model as both lovers and creative partners. Shot by photographer Billy Kidd, these abstract black and white prints feature milliner Heather Huey obscuring her kinetic, blurred nude form with her own futuristic body cage, braid and cocoon designs. The resultant body of work obliquely invokes the spirit of Man Ray and Lee Miller while also remaining a unique statement of a time when fashion and art are more symbiotic than ever.

Heather Huey’s couture headpieces have been pulled by such stylists as Karl Templer, Patti Wilson, Lori Goldstein, Nicola Formichetti, Camilla Nickerson, Ludivine Poiblanc, Giovanna Battaglia, Nicoletta Santoro, Robbie Spencer, David Vandewal, and Bill Mullen. Huey has collaborated with designers Thakoon, Simon Spurr, Siki Im, and Christian Siriano for New York Fashion Week. In 2010, Huey was afforded the opportunity to create her own pop-up installation at HL23 under the Highline Park in New York City.

Her designs have been photographed by Steven Meisel, Steven Klein, Miles Aldridge and Tom Munro for Vogue Italia; Mert & Marcus for Interview; Mario Sorrenti and Jean-Baptiste Mondino for W magazine; Mariano Vivanco for Vogue Hommes Japan; Mario Testino for V magazine; Miguel Reveriego, Greg Kadel and Ben Hassett for Numéro France; Paolo Roversi and Solve Sundsbo for Vogue China; Ellen von Unwerth for VMan; and Terry Richardson for Purple Fashion.

Katharina Grosse. It Wasn’t Us

Art | August 4, 2020

Katharina Grosse’s paintings can appear anywhere: on a rubber boot, on an egg, on the crumpled folds of a cloth, along a railway line, on the beach, in snow, on a sculptural form, or across a façade and on the roof. Her large-scale works are multi-dimensional pictorial worlds in which splendid colours sweep across walls, ceilings, objects, and even entire buildings and landscapes. Central to Grosse’s artistic practice is this notion that painting takes place not just on canvas, but that it can also permeate every facet of our surroundings. For the exhibition "Katharina Grosse. It Wasn’t Us", the artist has transformed the Historic Hall of Hamburger Bahnhof – Museum für Gegenwart – Berlin, as well as the outdoor space behind the building, into an expansive painting which radically destabilises the existing order of the museum architecture.

tensions in the region. Childhood memories steeped in the drama of war and refugee life recur throughout his art, which embraces themes like home, nation and cultural identity through a variety of media ranging from drawing and sculpture to video, installation and even writing. However, he does not proclaim a rupture between the personal and intimate and the historical and social, but instead perceives a relationship and continuity to be found in his intervention for the Palacio de Cristal.
