HOW VIRGIL ABLOH'S NEW YORK EXHIBITION CHANGED MY LIFE
by malick sylvain·
ABLOH TOOK NOTHING FOR GRANTED IN HIS APPROACH TO DESIGN, AN ATTITUDE ENCAPSULATED BY HIS MOTO "QUESTION EVERYTHING."
*Question everything to me means to always reconsider concepts. I interpret this flag as a vow to deconstruct every concept posed in our way and try to find it’s inefficiencies. Question everything means not to [pre]accept a concept without questioning it first.*
ACRYLIC ON CANVAS MOUNTED ON BOARD COURTESY OF TAKASHI MURAKAMI AND GAGOSIAN
*Takashi Murakami’s acrylic wall art statue burning the OFF-WHITE cross arrows logo is one of the staple piece of the exhibition. The colour combination is a mastery.*
VINTAGE STONE WASHED SCREEN PRINTED RAP TEE,
HURTLICHE DESIGN STUDIO GRAFFITI TEE
MADE OUT OF 2 SCREEN PRINTED FRAMES COURTESY OF SGE & HDS "VIRGIL WAS HERE."
*This Virgil Abloh shirt is handmade, carefully put together with a 360gsm heavy weight vintage cotton who changes colour the more it’s washed. The screen printed drawing of Virgil Abloh is looking up, at the wearer. Personally this remains one the most important piece in my closet as it holds the whom who wears the shirt accountable.*
