In 2009, Piet Paris, a Dutch illustrator and art director, invited us to create something for the Fashion Biennale in Arnhem (Netherlands). He gave us money, half of the Modern Museum Arnhem, and total freedom. It had to be about fashion and shape, those were the only starting points. This was the chance to finally execute a lot of wild ideas we had been walking around with and show them on a great platform. That was definitely a dream come true.
We built a whole house inside the museum with stairs, different levels and windows, creating the perfect surroundings for all the new works we made. Pictures were singing or breathing, there were strippers and moving furniture. The walk through this ‘holy house’ was an experience, a total concept; the opposite of a white cube. Next to that, our collaboration with Bernhard Willhelm cannot stay unmentioned. Creating the lookbooks for almost ten years never became dull. Together with Bernhard, we did a shoot with Björk, which was commissioned by Dazed & Confused. We shot her in Iceland wearing clothes designed by Bernhard especially for her tour. This all so was a one of a kind experience.
