Kim Keever collaborated with world-renowned designer Iris van Herpen to create three couture looks in her Spring 2019 collection, Shift Souls. Now a retrospective exhibition at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs, Sculpting the Senses pays tribute to the forward-thinking designs by van Herpen fabricated with the imagery of Keever's artwork and other contemporary artists. 

"For a joint art project with Kim Keever, Iris van Herpen has made human bodies float weightlessly, cradled by the colours of the cosmos, adorned with the vibrant hues of nebulae. Bodies lose their bearings and go floating off into infinity. Unhindered by frontiers or limits, her garments stretch, become diaphanous and silky, and unfold in dazzling chromatic ranges. Iris van Herpen's universe becomes a poetic explosion of vibrant pigments" - Mad Paris.

In this cross-disciplinary exhibition, van Herpen's ability to push conventional norms of fashion is brought to light. Art, fashion, science, technology, and architecture are intertwined to create an immersive and exploratory body of work. 

From Mad Paris "ranging from micro to macro, the exhibition questions the place of the body in space, its relationship to clothing and its environment, and its future in a rapidly changing world."

The exhibition ends with a presentation of van Herpen's works from floor to ceiling. Her designs immerse you in a cosmos-like universe and the photographic artworks of artist Kim Keever allow you to experience this world in all its entirety. 

You can view the retrospective from November 29, 2023, to April 28, 2024, at the Musee des Arts Decoratifs. Kim Keever's artwork is on display in Rooms 11-12 - Voyage Cosmique.
