FASHIONING THE OBJECT: BLESS, BOUDICCA, SANDRA BACKLUND

FASHIONING THE OBJECT:
BLESS, BOUDICCA, SANDRA BACKLUND

 The exhibition raises a discussion about the
methods and representations of fashion—a
discipline representing a mechanism of constant
change. The museum space, in contrast,
represents slow, compressed time that canonizes
the representations and images. Fashion
designers Bless, Boudicca and Sandra Backlund
display unconventional work processes through
installations, video works, photographs and clothes.
