Martin Klimas fine art series, “Foulard” was exhibited at the COSAR HMT in Duesseldorf. Foulard is French for scarf or neckerchief, lightweight fabrics made of silk, usually printed with multi-colored designs. Martin focused on high quality silk scarves from fashion lines like Dior, Yves St Laurent, Hermes, Louis Vuitton, exploring their two- and three-dimensionality. Strangely ambivalent in their nature, the scarves are recognized as the printed image, the fashion designer’s trademark, as well as an object. The illustrated scarves are like pages in a fashion history book, reflecting trends of the past 50 years, but also maintaining their own kind of style. They are records of artistic movements such as Abstract Expressionism, Optical and Pop Art. Viewers will be entranced by the geometric patterns’ visual spell. The scarves are captured as large scale images that dominate the frame. One could get lost in the changing topology and texture of the fabric as Martin photographs it.
