COMBINED OPPOSITES IN A LIQUID MODERNITY(*)

 

Within the areas of experimental fashion and textile art I want to create collages of industrial weaves in interaction with the body and our contemporary surroundings. This is a sketch of an end-result that will consist of an archive of wearable and non-wearable pieces of the weaves. From still life art objects, ready-to-wear garments and experimental showpieces. I will focus on combining double standard opposites of materials as a comment on todays liquid modernity. Such as high culture vs. low culture, mass produced vs. hand made, ethical vs. unethical, consciousness vs. unconsciousness, identity vs. branding, authenic vs. fake  and so on...

(*) liquid modernity

Zigmunt Bauman

 

Sociology ́s most radical contemporary diagnosis is the »liquid modernity,» based on a fast-paced, streamlined communication and information

dissemination that makes people able to, among other things to «shop for identities.» This both unconsciously and consciously, according to

sociologist Zygmunt Bauman.
