The exhibition “Dressing the Body – Silhouettes and fashion” opened in Mai 2014 in Barcelona Spain. The exhibition shows a variety of fashionable bodymodivications which invites visitors to observe the manipulation of our outer appearances and see, from five centuries’ worth of historical examples, the absurdity of being a slave to the body and fashion. “Dressing the Body” also draws parallels between the morphology of the human body, socio-cultural events and historical styles. The fashions of different periods had much to do with contemporaneous moral, social and aesthetic codes.
Our job was the installation of one main booth featuring a 7 min multiscreen projection loop of well arranged and animated footage of fashion films and catwalks from the early 30 until the late 90´s.
