Viktor & Rolf ‘dolls’ at studio job gallery Antwerp

19May10

the true strength of viktor & rolf’s work lies in their genuine modesty,
though they are occasionally known for making grandiose statements,
with overwhelming proportions. the essence of their work is high-quality simplicity:
look around you, take what you see and try to improve on it, sans any idealistic aims
or wild fantasies.

viktor & rolf aim to keep with the traditions of the low countries, in which idiosyncrasies
and uniqueness are only valued when kept at arm’s length, and that a humble attitude is expected.
their success comes not from rejecting these conventions, but because they have developed
a sincerity in which they test the boundaries of this sham context, exposing its falsehood.
therefore, the duo felt they needed to put their entire oeuvre into perspective.
‘dolls’ is the result. it is a blend of creative and artistic power, coupled with the modesty
which typifies their work.

this collection has now found a home with studio job, whom they have had a personal
relationship with since the 1990s.
