BODY(DRESS?)SPACE(ROOM?) – an exploration of dress at the intersection between body and arranged space through movement
Linnea Bågander, 2014
The work explores the boarders between set and costume design and garment and architecture rather than looking up on the differences and by doing so suggesting a more dynamic relationship between the traditional definitions. It challenges both the way dress is viewed upon within the context of fashion design as well as the room is viewed upon with in the context of architecture and through this is seeking to find a new context of the body.
Because of its focus on the moving body’s relationship with arranged material the work is closely linked to the field of dance performance and the field of performance have served as dialogue when developing the work. Even though the work is of artistic nature it is in line with the resent developments within architecture as well as textile design questioning the contemporary and suggesting for the future.
