Born in Nicosia, Cyprus, in 1970, Hussein Chalayan is one of the most innovative, experimental and conceptual fashion designers of our time. Taking his inspiration from such varied sources as architecture, philosophy and anthropology, he has created an oeuvre that lies on the border between fashion and contemporary art. Chalayans work often focuses on cultural and social themes: this may be related to the particular biography of the artist, whose identity has been shaped by the combination of different cultures. In the past 10 years Hussein Chalayan has produced more than twenty collections, the most important of which are presented in this exhibition in the form of outfits, installations, photographic images and video pieces. The exhibition was conceived by the Groninger Museum (NL).

Hussein Chalayan is currently representing Turkey at the 51st Biennale di Venezia (12 June6 November 2005).
