“Fashion Reincarnated: Recycling Identities & Memories” Exhibition

Darb 1718 Contemporary Art and Culture Center Revisits Fashion

29 April - 31 May, 2013

 
This month fashion is being revisited at Darb 1718 through collective actions, unique fashion workshops and an art exhibition entitled Fashion Reincarnated: Recycling Identities and Memories. Opening event: Monday April 29th 2013, 7pm.
 
In its mission to provide a “spring board for emerging artists” Darb 1718 Contemporary Art & Culture Centre is committed to all art forms and means of expression, including fashion. Through recycled fashion design, mixed-media installations, professional fashion shoots and unique training opportunities, Egyptian and foreign artists are exploring identity, memories and fashion in its broadest sense.
 
Swedish Fashion Workshop “Make & Remake Fashion & Gender” - November 2012
 
In November 2012 a Swedish-funded recycled fashion design workshop by Maja Gunn - Making & Remaking Fashion & Gender - offered new perspectives and practical applications for using unconventional materials or garments that one already has. Leftover paper was draped into garments highly connected to the participants’ identity and memories. The workshop also explored androgyny and the construction of gender and how gender is explicit in our clothes and appearances. Cross-dressing as a method was used in the design process and raised issues of identity, gender and the situation of women in Egypt today. Design doesn’t just reflect on society and norms but it also creates and confirms societal norms. The use of different environmentally-friendly materials in conjunction with social structure and gender role awareness offered strong parallels between recycling, design and the creative process.
 
The workshop phase is complete and now it’s time to present the outcome to the public in the form of a collective exhibition.
 
Art Exhibition “Fashion Reincarnated: Recycling Identities & Memories” curated by Karina Shalaby
 
Collection by workshop participants:
Hamsa Rabie,
Salma Khalil,
Noura AboulOuyoun,
Maha Fahmy
Doaa Bagato
 
Additional works contributed by contemporary artists:
Sophia Ahmed,
May El Hossamy,
Mounaz AbdelRaouf,
Karina Shalaby
Kegham Djeghalian
 
From a multi-disciplinary arts perspective using an assemblage of different mediums and materials, the artists and designers reflect on fashion design and visual arts in light of the recycling process - from the pattern and the finished good, to fashion “leftovers” and the reincarnation of styles and materials. Different garments, items and installations will be used to express and question identity, androgyny, consumerism and waste. Experimenting with forms and focusing on the stories, memories and history connected to the items, each one-of-a-kind piece celebrates and commemorates the life events, relationships and passions of those who made it, wore it, or tore it apart. In the spirit of reincarnation, the artistic works presented seek to evoke their own storytelling.
 
Exhibition Opening Monday 29 April, 7pm
 
The Opening was interactive with “a live art act” which wass bound to generate a buzz. As the night progressed, the jazz fusion musician Ahmed Rabie gave a performance. The event is hosted by Darb 1718 and the Swedish embassy. Participating artists and designers had a chance to engage with the audience and present their perspectives.
