Photographer Tim Gutt and Art director Shona Heath have chosen B Store in London to show their latest project, “Previous Arrangements”.
The clothes featured in Previous Arrangements were selected from designer Peter Jensen’s archive. Tim Gutt and Shona Heath say that they are particularly attracted to Peter Jensen style. They have already incorporated his clothing in their previous work. To quote them, Peter Jensen’s clothes “seem to celebrate a cinematic iconography, they enhance narratives and they bring the cast to life. His pieces are beautiful, timeless and courageously simple.”
An earlier collaboration in 2006 between Gutt, Heath and Jensen created a stereoscopic photo story shot in Central Park, New York for a 3-D View-Master. Rarely seen in the intended format, the piece will also be exhibited with Previous Arrangements for the duration of the exhibition.
Tim Gutt is a graduate of the Royal Academy of Arts in the Netherlands, his work often resists categorization as it shifts between the spheres of art and fashion. His recent exhibitions include Inner City at Claire de Rouen Books, London and Case Study at Plymouth Arts Centre. His work is featured in a range of publications for clients as diverse as the Henry Moore Institute and The Pet Shop Boys, while his editorial work features in French Vogue, Art Review and Another Man.
Shona Heath unique sensibility has led to some of the most visually arresting fashion editorials of recent years, most notably in Italian, British and American Vogue as well as Another Magazine and Dazed & Confused. She works with a range of photographers who include Nick Knight, Craig McDean, Tim Walker and Serge Leblon.
Collaborative projects between Gutt & Heath have been published in Kilimanjaro, 032c, British Vogue, Beaux Arts, and Dazed & Confused.
