new adventures in menswear: ra in paris

renegades. outsiders. pioneers. these are the ones we feel a kinship with. for the first time this year, ra dedicates a separate edition to menswear, using its paris location to explore different facets of masculinity. a seamless and lively interaction between art, fashion, music and performance, the f/w11- 12 exhibition offers a strong point of view, sampling singular voices and pushing new talent. this experimental and playful approach is part of ra's identity, operating a joyful crossover between creative disciplines.
this season, we decided to include 16 international contributors for you to discover. whether they work with clothes, accessories, photographs or instruments, these individuals share a willingness to be bold, challenging their creative limits, searching for alternatives and stepping out of their natural habitat. their
narratives, passions and obsessions will unfold during the event. allow yourself to be convinced. get into their story. enjoy the unexpected.

frederik heyman

antwerp-based photographer frederik heyman has a knack for creating bizarre situations in his images.
drawing upon nature, disasters, bodies and youth as key sources of inspiration, the belgian creates
elaborate mises en scènes, which are both primitive and sophisticated. frederik enjoys working with
designers, using fashion and clothes as meaningful expressions complementing his own visual
obsessions. the absurdly surrealistic feel of some of his pictures can be pleasurable and unnerving, conjuring up forces of the unknown, as well as pagan forms of ritualism. he will present selected images and an exclusive video from two neighbouring projects, the rooftop and the weather. protection and danger are key themes, as well as personal struggles against the strength of the environment.
