Tres vestits. Silk, neoprene, polyester crepe, nylon and cotton twill. 2016.
Tres vestits as part of my fashion collection called Un nosaltres impersonal were exhibited at Dress and undress bodies: Phenomenologies of appearance exhibition curated by Oriol Ocaña and Maia Creus.
“The “performativity” potential of fashion, its generative capacity, lies in its eminently public character. It’s in this sense that fashion design has a special relevance in its capacity to act into our bodies. Fashion industry has not only standardize the gender identity due to the repetition of traits that you identify with something female or something male. But also, fashion industry has made a number of paradigmatic, desirable, canonical bodies, while trying to hide the deformity and the difference.
The exhibition propose a reflection thought fashion and art around the body. Our question is which is the boundary between fashion as a way of indoctrination and getting dress as a way of appearance, of thinking and being yourself.” – words by Oriol Ocaña.
In the exhibition there were three dresses of the collection. The first is constructed from three overlapping suits based on the same pattern but different sizes. The second suit as a dress base with two identical dresses formally forming a central hanging garment drapes. The last dress is one piece that wraps the body structure through the merger of three different standards bodies.
