HART+LËSHKINA is the artistic duo creating in New York. Through merging the art, fashion, and commerce they have already developed their own unmistakable style. During the years of their career as a duo, HART+LËSHKINA were commissioned by Vogue, The New York Times, Interview Germany, AnOther and many more.
Beyond the Clouds is the result of the artists’ exploration through desire, craving, sensitivity and hope. Silhouettes of people lost garments, still lifes constructed from fleeting fabrics are all opposed and matched with the shades of rose and white.
As the artists say: “Each individual is presented in various stages of undress, isolated against plain white backgrounds. They are caught in moments of quiet solitude all at different points of physical and psychological transitions, connected by the desire to transcend their physicality.” In a very sensual and stirring way, the project reveals intimate spheres of the human body, its disintegration, and impermanence.
The book Beyond the Clouds was designed in the cooperation with the renowned Japanese art director and graphic designer Hideki Nakajima and is available via Total Visual Shop. The artists’ daily activity can also be viewed here.
