NY Mag’s The Cut recently made the wise decision of sending a shipment of Resort Fashion over to New York-based artist Asger Carlsen and gave him complete creative control to interpret the clothes how he felt fit. Inspired by African masks, Carlsen manipulated and sculpted the models to his instantly recognizable style producing a stunning body of images.

With Roger Ballen on the cover of the magazine this month, we thought we would take a look back at one our favorite collaborations: Asger Carlsen and Roger Ballen. We are big fans of Asger Carlsen who we interviewed in the January 2013 issue of the magazine. The idea of the two working together seemed like such a natural fit that we were not even surprised to see it. But that doesn't mean we were any less excited to see it!

Known for his fantastic images of manipulated and distorted bodies that often resemble sculptures, Carlsen will be showing work from a medium his audience has not seen yet.. We will have more news as the New York Art Book Fair nears closer.

For their forthcoming album “Free Your Mind,” the Australian electronic band, Cut Copy, enlisted Asger Carlsen to work some of his mutation magic for the bands press photos. The Danish-born, New York-based photographer/sculptor, altered the four band members faces to become one interconnected face and in the other image two of the members can be seen with double-sided faces.

We like the way V1 Gallery wrote their press release, so we are just going to go with it: Hester is not easy to explain. It has to be viewed and experienced. Hester is not easily understood. Sculptures of amorphous human figures photographed in non descript spaces. A cross between a David Lynch dream, a Henry Moore sculpture and a Francis Bacon painting, mixed by Dr. Jekyll in Frankenstein’s lab. Surreal cubistic tableaus in black and white.

We love Asger Carlsen, and the universal "What the f@!&" moment everyone has when they first see an Asger Carlsen creation. Interviewed in our January 2013 issue, NYC-based Carlsen has taken his increasingly abstract Hester series to Berlin for an exhibition at Dittrich & Schlechtriem (formerly Pool Gallery). As everything with these works, things are not as they seem, or everything they seem. You decide.
