“My senses are sharp and my hands are like gloves.”

(“Venus”, Television, 1977)

The term hygiene, which comes from the Greek, means “[art] serving the health“. LRRH_ take that literally and realize the second non-profit project since the beginning of the pandemic that is dedicated to a hygiene accessory.

The handkerchief edition LRRH_CONTRIBUTION #1 was created in 2020 with the participation of 57 artists.
The current edition LRRH_ CONTRIBUTION #2 was designed by 39 participating artist. On everyone involved in club culture, the effects of the pandemic have been devastating. We will donate the proceeds to this field.

Gloves are still omnipresent – in the cold, in sports, in crafts and currently also at the supermarket checkout; as “pragmatic”, protective accessories. Nevertheless, from today’s perspective it is difficult to imagine that a hundred years ago a person wearing no gloves in public was considered “not properly dressed”.
Before COVID-19, people wearing face masks while shopping would certainly have attracted attention. But the general understanding of “everyday hygiene” has undergone a fundamental change. And, like hygiene, “distance” is a term whose common usage has seen an inflationary surge over the past two years. Presumably both terms would be mentioned, if someone had to paraphrase a glove. Seen in this way, they fit into the current time – which we will soon be able to talk about in retrospect – hopefully – properly dressed.
