Henzel Studio Collaborations, is an exclusive collection of limited edition art rugs realized in close collaboration with some of the world’s most notable contemporary artists. All pieces are made by hand, using centuries’ old weaving techniques that make each rug one of a kind.
For Henzel Studio, Douglas Gordon created a two panel composition as an homage to Courbet’s painting L’Origine du Monde.
Hailed as one of the most prominent artist of his generation to emerge from Britain, Gordon’s work spans across many different
forms of media. Throughout his career he has utilized photography, text, sculpture, and—perhaps most significantly—film, with which he produced a series of video instillations based on iconic films including Alfred Hitchcock’s Psycho, John Ford’s The Searchers,
and Martin Scorsese’s Taxi Driver. Gordon’s work is meant to abstract what we think we know and understand, and through that
abstraction creates a new experience for the human memory to process and approach what it has previously witnessed.
