September 21st 2016 - 17:30 // Opening & Book launch WHOLE by Freudenthal/Verhagen

X BANK is proud to present the opening of our new
exhibition and the official book launch of WHOLE
by Freudenthal/Verhagen.
Opening September 21st, 17:30.

WHOLE is dedicated to the entirely uncommon, weird and wonderful body of work
of fashion and fine art photographers Carmen Freudenthal and Elle Verhagen,
dating all the way back to the start of their collaboration in 1989.Their work
combines fine art photography with fashion, surreal imagery with brutal reality and
often makes the spectator wonder, is it art or is it fashion? Is it real or
manipulated? 

WHOLE is a journey into their surreal, colorful and quaint universe.
WHOLE contains a selection of 150 works by Freudenthal/Verhagen,
decontextualised from their original series and chronology and rearranged by
color. The book’s unique edit brings new life to each and every work, be it from
their fashion editorials for magazines such as i-D, Dazed & Confused, Flash Art,
NRC De LUXE and Harpers Bazaar, their long time collaboration with fashion
designer Bernhard Willhelm, or commissioned campaigns, portraits and museum
works.
Please join us for the festive opening at X BANK, Spuistraat 172, Amsterdam. See you soon!
