Beyond Fashion examines the works of artists who have incorporated elements of fashion and it’s creation into their practice. It explores the capacity for fashion themed art making to delve into topics of the personal and the political, as well as providing a vehicle for experimentation and expression that goes beyond everyday fashion. Beyond Fashion includes the works of artists that have experience in fashion design, fashion photography and jewellery making.
The Girl and the Magpie presents 2 sets of works: previously unshown pieces from the Hair Project and 5 news pieces from the Fragile Collection.
The first set of work, the Hair Project, questions what hair has to say about our societies, gender conceptions, culture, politics, religion.
The second set draws attention to the beauty and fragility of nature, and to the urgency to protect it, through everyday action.
