Radical Knitwear Bernhard Willhelm, spring/summer 2001. Faux-naïve pictorial knitwear created using jacquard technique, enhanced by embroidery. Pictorial sweater designs were also shown for men. The innovative catalogue for the season placed the models in domestic interiors, some performing chores. Original presentation and storytelling are continuing features of Willhelm’s work.
“A context which the shapes become a pretext for exploration of space, freeing itself from its real picture, to make it more emotionally relevant. The minimal geometry, shadows and colors intersect between reality and absence, visually decontextualized from initial aesthetics. In this way, the following photographs describe a “non-place”, dematerialized by its own matter.”
