Internationally acclaimed fashion designers, Antwerp-based Walter Van Beirendonck (of the â€œAntwerp Sixâ€) and Los Angeles-based Bernhard Willhelm, will make their mark in Miami as part of The World of Mr Somebody & Mr Nobody, a group stall/installation coinciding with Art Basel|Miami Beach and Design Miami 2014. Curated by Heidi Chisholm, Cathy Leff, and Sharon Lombard, The World of Mr Somebody & Mr Nobody is part art show, part fashion store, part design exhibition, and part global bazaar.
Inspired by the visual language and culture of their native South Africa, Lombard and Chisholm are creating an environment and narrative for The World of Mr Somebody & Mr Nobody that breaks down the boundaries between practical and intellectual, art and design, craft and commerce, old and new, center and periphery, North and South, sense and non-sense, and beauty and the bizarre.
Van Beirendonckâ€™s and Willhelmâ€™s clothes will be complimented with works by Lombard and Chisholm; on-the-spot images created by New York-based fashion and celebrity photographer Miles Ladin; graphic works by South African performance-artist-turned-graphic designer Peet Pienaar; and clothing by Johannesburg-based Ella Buter. The individual works that comprise this multi-media installation/marketâ€”objects, clothing, graphic design, photography, and furnitureâ€”will be for sale.
The World Of Mr Somebody & Mr Nobody is sponsored by Craig Robins and the Miami Design District. www.miamidesigndistrict.net
