ALYX / NICK KNIGHT – “The Sound of Light’s Own Destruction”

032c Workshop / Joerg Koch are pleased to present “The Sound of Light’s Own Destruction,” an exhibition by the designer MATTHEW WILLLIAMS and fashion photographer Nick Knight for the New York-based label ALYX. After features in print and online editorials, as well as a jointly hosted party during Paris Fashion Week, this exhibition marks the latest chapter in 032c’s engagement with the brand.

Williams and Knight are long-time collaborators. Before he founded his own label in 2015, Williams worked as a creative director for musicians such as Kanye West and Lady Gaga. Nick Knight is one of fashion’s most advanced photographers, having produced campaigns for brands such asDior or Calvin Klein, and editorials for fashion magazines around the world. Since Williams premiered ALYX in 2015, Knight has shot its seasonal catalogues.

Williams’s largely autobiographically inspired vision of ALYX stands for a blend of inner city aggression and timeless elegance, unifying luxury and subversion. “When I started the brand, I really looked to Nick to help define the world and mood,” he says. On view at the 032c vitrine will be a series of images from their previous collaborations for ALYX, as well as a video of fireworks exploding in plexiglass boxes produced for their next collection, visualizing its title concept: Love Chaos.
