EAGLE EYE: Since retiring from fashion design in 2005, Helmut Lang has shifted his focus from the human body to creating two- and three-dimensional nonfigurative artworks. One of his most dramatic pieces, “Three,” transformed the hulking, mahogany eagle statue that long dominated his store in New York’s SoHo into three distinct sculptures, which Lang coated with tar. Created in 2008, the works now have found a new retail home, as they were acquired by Sweden’s Acne brand on June 30, through the Sadie Coles HQ gallery in London. Acne will install the artwork at its new London store, which opens July 15 at 13 Dover Street in Mayfair. Lang himself, who is based in New York and Long Island, is working on new works for a group exhibition in Los Angeles this September and a solo exhibition slated for the MAK Museum of Applied Arts in Vienna late next year.
