Abstract

The Critical Costume 2015 exhibition presented contemporary costume practices and performances by thirty two artists-researchers from three continents and various artistic backgrounds. The works examined the performative qualities of material and form - whether physical, digital or virtual - and stimulated the audience’s thinking to reconsider the role of costume in contemporary performance by proposing new modes of representation as well as new artistic processes. Moreover, the selected works explored how the scenographic body is constructed on a spatial, temporal and conceptual level through body manipulation, material exploration, embodied design and its interpretation.
