About This Product
In support of local heritage and artisan enterprises, Hauser & Wirth is proud to present the Artist Scarf – a collaboration between gallery artists and Jane Carr, the esteemed British luxury accessories designer. This unique scarf is produced in Como, Italy, home to the art of silk printing and boasting a rich history of textile craftsmanship. Limited-edition, each scarf is meticulously hand-finished using traditional methods for hand-rolled hems and delicate, hand-frayed edges.
Lorna Simpson
Born in Brooklyn, Lorna Simpson came to prominence in the 1980s with her pioneering approach to conceptual photography. Simpson’s early work – particularly her striking juxtapositions of text and staged images – raised questions about the nature of representation, identity, gender, race and history that continue to drive the artist’s expanding and multi-disciplinary practice today. She deftly explores the medium’s umbilical relation to memory and history, both central themes within her work.
