untitled #8 [back]
Fashion is the most visceral form of collective communication, it is the exoskeleton that we use to simultaneously invoke our resistance and acquiescence to the status quo. The daily ritual of dressing is at once an act of promoting one's collective identity and her personal alienation. By ignoring this dialogue, our identity becomes a tool in the invisible webs of philosophies, hate, and propaganda that surround us.
Black is the most basic common color we wear. It is sensual and attractive while often being safe and invisible, which is why it it the equivalent of a blank canvas for fashion. With this blank canvas, viewers are encouraged to manipulate, destroy, paint, sand, glue, slash, hack, draw and sew everything that you wish to see someday in future, when you least expect it, on the most unlikely person, in the worst situation. These clothes will then become the initial collection in the permanent satellite collection here at the Blastomat on July 1st and, as usual, will be given away for free.
