HENRIK VIBSKOV - Books & Fragrance
Henrik Vibskov fragrances always begin with the evocation of a location from his wordly travels that inspire him. For BLACK and RED, the scents are a reflection of the elegance of asian landscapes. From ikebana Japanese floral arrangements and geisha tea ceremonies, to wandering the Aokigahara forests at the base of Mt. Fuji, these fragrances offer a glimpse into thousands of years of cultural refinement.
Henrik Vibskov has exhibitited at PS1 – MoMA in New York, Palais de Tokyo in Paris, ICA in London, Zeeuws Museum in Holland, Kiyomizu-Dera Temple in Kyoto, Japan, Wilhelm Wagendfeld Haus in Bremen, NAI Nederlands Architectuur Instituut in Rotterdam, Holland, The Textile Museum, Washington, USA , just to name a few. Together with visual artist Andreas Emenius he has created an ongoing art project called ‘The Circular Series’, which they begun to work on in 2009. Like in their earlier collaboration ‘The Fringe Projects’, in this project the circle is used as a clarifier, or visual glue, linking all the projects to the same universe. Henrik has published four books, including a 2012 monograph of his work to date (published by Gestalten).
