Proposal for ‘Reflections’

Milkwood Gallery Basement

“My proposal for the Milkwood Gallery Basement is to use the space to create a ‘mock shop’ called “Reflections.” Reflections will act as interactive exhibit that engages the viewer by asking them how clothing , especially fashion, has come to have such influence in our own identities and in how we view each other? The viewer is invited to question the practices involved in creating and selling a fashion garment in an ironic reversal of the process in which the garment is sold to the individual. In this case the example is the humble t-shirt.

Exploring verbal and visual language I hope that during my month-long residency I will be able to explore themes that I wasn’t able to explore during my time as a fashion and textiles student.

Reflections will begin with an ‘Opening Night’ preview and will culminate in a ‘Closing Down’ exhibition. Between these two events I will be altering the exhibit and the clothing on display. The objective being to re-evaluate my own practice as a fashion and textiles designer.”
