REFLEXION - modeshowet som æstetisk installation

Lin Klinke Wæver & Amanda Uetea Hald

Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


In this project, we explore how a fashion show can be re-invented as an installation that potentially can lead the viewer to experience a sense of aesthetic qualities. The fashion industry is criticised for being exclusionary of the general public audience. As a reaction to that, we are working with the perception of the viewer as a participating element in the existence of the installation throughout this project. Based on the encyclopaedia 'Guide to Producing a Fashion Show', we deduce the components of the fashion show, which we subsequently rethink and transfer to the installation REFLEXTION. Using theory on aesthetic qualities, we identify which independent aesthetic characteristics the installation possesses. Furthermore, we analyse what contextual characteristics are supplied when implementing the installation in the Dome of Visions, which is part of the project as the exhibition space. We draw on Nicolas Bourriaud's theory of relational aesthetics to develop the participatory view on the installation. We conclude that the project and the participatory view on the installation can contribute as an input to the discussion and criticism of the fashion world and the fashion show as being exclusionary.
