April 20 – August 4 2013
Monique van Heist was invited to create an exhibition at SCHUNCK* in Heerlen, a village in the south of holland. SCHUNCK* used to be a famous department store that sold clothes and fabrics, and had sewing workshops to produce clothing for miners, priests etc. The department store had a big glass show window that was famous for its modern and extraordinary displays.
Nowadays SCHUNCK* is a multidisciplinary cultural institution, that also houses a museum for modern art. Monique van Heist made the first ever fashion-exhibition at schunck*. The exhibition was made in the glass shopwindow and displayed new work of moniquevanheist’s project hellofashion, using the art of window-display to the maximum.
