This autumn Danish fashion designer Henrik Vibskov takes up residence at Norway’s Lillehammer Art Museum with wearable art and larger-than-life installations

At the intersection of art, music, design, photography, and video sits Danish designer, Henrik Vibskov. The 49-year-old multidisciplinary artist and self-proclaimed ‘King of Chaos’ wears many hats (which he most likely designed himself) – not fitting into the box is his speciality. His latest creation is not an abstract print dress but an exhibition of his work at Norway’s Lillehammer Art Museum.

'(Please!) Clean Up, Honey', unveiled on Saturday, marks the museum’s first sashay into the fashion world. The opening was delayed due to COVID, but 2021 also marks 20 years since Vibskov graduated from Central St Martins in London.
