Centraal Museum Utrecht





Studio Harm Rensink and HeyNiek created the design for the exhibition ‘HAIR! Human Hair in Fashion and Art’ at the Centraal Museum Utrecht, the Netherlands.


The Centraal Museum broke new ground by staging this major exhibition - over 1,000 m2 - about the use of human hair in art and design. The exhibition has been conceived on the basis of cultural-historical research, exploring the developments in fashion and the visual arts. The exhibition’s main focus was on ‘hair as a statement’. HAIR! therefore included designs by groundbreaking, international fashion designers and artists who have been inspired by this material, such as Charlie Le Mindu, Julien d’Ys, Christiaan Houtenbos, Zoran Todorovic, Bob Recine and Silvia B.


The exhibition design created a quest through the museum’s galleries. Each room explored different employments of this unique material. Also one room in the exhibition invited the visitor to participate and make an active contribution to the exhibition’s content.
