The exhibition combines artworks that question concepts of constructions of identity and expressions through art and fashion.
The colorful oil paintings of Dusseldorf based artist Susanne Kamps kick off the show with the opulence of Parisian shop windows and inside views of fashion designers studios. The collaboration of the Cologne based artists Nora Hansen and Lisa Alice Klosterkötter intervenes arts and fashion combining silk paintings, bags and outer wear within a capsule collection.
The concrete sculptures of cologne based artist Linda Nadji play with joy and burden of handbags and at the same time monumentalizes the obsession for them. Dusseldorf based artist Anys Reimann shows leather and fur collages dealing with questions of cultural identity between self-attribution and attribution by others and myths or folk tales.
The chain structures of London based artist Theresa Weber are part of a bigger installation that transforms from space to space, in analogy to the transformation that people perform in different spaces containing elements for the construction of being. Like a soundtrack for the runway, the Dusseldorf based artist Yaël Kempf presents a site specific sound installation in the bathroom, along with colorful silkscreened and hand painted towels by the Cologne artist Magdalena Kita.
