Warhol x Henzel
Winner of Archiproducts Design Awards: ANDY WARHOL, Oxidation Painting, 1978, designed by Calle Henzel in 2021, is based on one of Warhol’s most controversial yet abstract works, his Oxidation Paintings (1978). Warhol’s Oxidation paintings resulted in an abstract exploration of differently shaped stains, intricate color-shifts and shimmering surfaces. Far removed from his previous work, this was the first time he committed to a certain kind of painterly abstraction reminiscent of Abstract Expressionism. The process in which these paintings were made, by urinating on the canvas, and the developing process through oxidation, suggest a kind of alchemy in which bodily fluids are transformed into images of devastating beauty. Curated by Joakim Andreasson, the collection is part of Henzel Studio Heritage, an ongoing program of art rugs established with foundations and estates of the most prominent artists of the 20th century. Available at Kalkeriet.

Worldwide debut at Frieze London: Tom Hegen
Kalkeriet is pleased to present Tom Hegen. Hegen was born in Königsbrunn, Bavaria, in 1991, he has been specialising in aerial photography for many years. To Hegen, aerial photography is the only possible medium that can simultaneously portray our civilization and pay tribute to our planet.
With material as departure point, Lang’s recent works explore the tensions between abstraction and figuration, and investigate space beyond the limitations of the human body through sculpture, reliefs, assemblage paintings and collages.

Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd
Kalkeriet is pleased to unveil a new collection of rugs designed by Calle Henzel after the sculpture ”Non-Violence” by Swedish artist Carl Fredrik Reuterswärd. Now emblem for The Non-Violence Art Project, the collection was developed in close collaboration and partnership with the non-profit organization. The sculpture was originally created by Reuterswärd as a memorial tribute to his friend John Lennon after he was shot and killed in New York City in 1980.
Henzel has over the years in an uncompromised fashion challenged the traditional conventions of subject matter, shape, finishings and special treatments as a result of painstaking research that includes vintage treatments, intricate surface compositions and even natural erosion – methodologies that further blur the distinction between art and design.
