'selective memory series, the helmut lang purple book, janvier' are 80 pages of intimate exchanges.
After what looks like a crazy computer desk full of files, starts a curious scrapbook of Helmut Lang life among the fashion, advertising and art worlds, and people who were involved in them.
With artists like Jenny Holzer or Louise Bourgeois, Juergen Teller or Bruce Weber, among others, this strange book project (released in conjunction with Purple Fashion, 7th issue of summer 2007) contains letters, notes, postcards from collaborators and friends manipulated, amplified and digitized.
Beautiful interventions poetics about his personal memory.
