'Iris van Herpen's SHOWcabinet presents a world where time dissolves and disciplines intertwine. Van Herpen's collaborative approach to her couture has resulted in collections that defy categorisation. In her work, fashion, science, art and technology are not separate subjects, but flow from a single source. [...] Accompanying her work in the cabinet are art works which make the same leaps to break down the divisions between disciplines. The artists included are informed by art history, science and nature equally and present works created through meticulous and repetitive crafts. They find their inspiration in natural wonders- spirals, skeletons, waves and wings, where science and art collide.'
