Out of Fashion
April 5 - June 30, 2013 and September 14, 2013 - January 5, 2014
Two sculptures from the IFF’s Coral Forest series are included in the Out of Fashion exhibition that is on view at the GL Holtegaard Museum in Copenhagen from April 5 - June 30, 2013. The show will travel to the KUNSTEN Museum of Modern Art in Aalborg, Denmark for an exhibition between September 14, 2013 - January 5, 2014.
In the exhibition curator's words,
Out of Fashion points to the link between art and clothing and to the handicraft itself as a typically female occupation. Precisely handicraft – embroidery, crochet work and sewing have in recent years become synonymous with a kind of anti-art, or rebel-art, where female artists use the craft to convey political and social messages.
The Coral Forest is a recent outgrowth of the IFF’s Crochet Coral Reef, amplifying the original project’s delicate and refined sensibility. Artists in the exhibition are Alice Creischer (D), Brian Getnick (US), Cosima von Bonin (D), Elmgreen & Dragset (DK/NO), Erwin Wurm (A), Grayson Perry (UK), Gudrun Hasle (DK), Hotel Pro Forma (DK), Institute For Figuring (US), Kaarina Kaikkonen (FIN), Lilibeth Cuenca Rasmussen (DK), Maiken Bent (DK), Moran Sanderovich (IL), Nicholas Hlobo (ZA), Yinka Shonibare MBE (UK), Zac Monday (US).
