Carpenters Workshop Gallery, PARIS, PRESENTS "DENIM", SOLO SHOW BY HARRY NURIEV, FROM 4 MARCH 2023
From 4 March 2023, Carpenters Workshop Gallery Paris will be presenting Denim, the first solo exhibition of the artist Harry Nuriev, with the precious collaboration of Aurélie Julien Collectible.
For this carte blanche at Carpenters Workshop Gallery, Harry Nuriev will take over the ground floor of the Parisian venue located at 54 rue de la Verrerie with a set of pieces specially designed for the space.
Through this exhibition, Harry Nuriev repurposes the denim canvas. An iconic fabric, it has been adopted by miners, cowboys, Hollywood celebrities, rebels, rock stars, and haute couture over the past two centuries. By doing so, the artist is bringing fashion to design as his ethos is to combine design art and fashion together.
ABOUT HARRY NURIEV
It confronts, and/or cohabits and/or even plays with each other, all types of virtual and material medias, generating the invention of immersive spaces, public and private interiors, design of objects and installations also projected into the Metaverse.
Through different stages of thought: effects of cloning, mutation and finally adaptation to a new real or virtual world, Harry Nuriev takes us out of our comfort zone to enlighten us about today’s society, to make us noticeably pay attention to its development.
It thus stimulates the idea of transforming what can be transformed to better adapt to the world that is offered to us and to the world that it imagines for us.
Its signature, rooted in our time, is inspired by historical references such as the founding members of the Bauhaus, and is formalized in the fusion of art, design, architecture and fashion.
Harry Nuriev plays with the borders that can traditionally separate these four fields of creation and challenges common ideas about the way we live and work.
The New York Times Magazine hailed Harry Nuriev as a pioneering voice of contemporary minimalistism, noting the original influence of his talent for bringing together architecture, craftsmanship and current technologies.
