“Our relationship to clothing is intimate, something intuitive and deeply established within cultures all over the world. However, our understanding of how we form meaningful relationships with what we wear is ambiguous and inadequately discussed.”
The exhibition examines the face of throw-away fashion culture and cyclical, trend-driven clothing production, focusing on the notion of the self-made. TCMS brings together the work of seven Brisbane fashion designers and artists: Levi Cranston, Thomas King, Emily McGuire, Aidan Renata, Tom Summers, Emma Tothill and Isabel Wengert.
Collectively, the pieces exhibited explore how sentimental and emotional value can become attached to cloth and handmade garments, and similarly, to the stuffs of fast-fashion and throwaway culture. Ultimately, TCMS encourages a more introspective conversation to play out between us and our clothes.
Curated by Chloe Borich.
The exhibition opens Thursday, April 19th at Analogue Gallery. Doors open at 6:30pm.
Note: this exhibition will be on show for one night only.
