Digital Disturbances

  • 11 September — 12 December 2015 *on now

Fashion Space Gallery, located at London College of Fashion, University of the Arts London is pleased to announce its latest exhibition Digital Disturbances. A group show curated by Leanne Wierzba and featuring designers: ANREALAGE, Bart Hess, Flora Miranda, POSTmatter, Simone C. Niquille and Alexander Porter, Tigran Avetisyan, Texturall. This new exhibition will examine the influence of digital concepts and tools on fashion.

Over the past two decades digital technology has advanced from a confined and peripheral tool into an integrated and mainstream component of the way fashion is produced, distributed and analysed. While this increasing engagement has affected the way fashion works practically, it has also given rise to new ideas about how the physical world might be understood and represented.

Out of this emerges a body of work which raises questions about the current potential, limitations and desirability of integrating digital phenomena into the fabric of the material world. This work reveals the strange and uneven process of translation across material and virtual platforms - or between analogue and digital techniques - in which information is potentially lost, gained or distorted.

Digital Disturbances presents both recent works and new commissions by seven designers and creative teams whose work documents these interactions and effects, both in the design and representation of fashion.

POSTmatter will showcase Ripple (2014), an interactive film installation which simulates the virtual experience of touch. Visitors are invited to run their hands across a motion sensor fabric control panel, causing digital ripples to reveal layers of materials and images on screen. Echo (2011), a film by Bart Hess, explores ongoing material research into the creation of shape through repetition - physical materials and the human body mutate into sculptural timelapses. A selection of garments from Anrealage’s Autumn/Winter 2010 wideshortslimlong collection will show the results of using computer design software to manipulate objects - presenting the viewer with four dramatically different silhouettes. Shirts from Simone C. Niquille’s REALFACE Glamouflage (2013) collection raise questions about the impact of facial recognition technology and surveillance on personal privacy. They employ dazzle, a camouflage which uses optic illusions to conceal through confusion. Patterns on the shirts incorporate pirated faces and celebrity impersonators in multiples, providing an additional layer of ‘identity’ which enables wearers to evade verification.

Charlotte Hodes

Spode Trees and Dressed Silhouettes

  • 26 September — 8 November 2015 *on now

Charlotte Hodes has been commissioned by the British Ceramic Biennial to create a major new installation to be shown at the 2015 Biennial. The installation will be the result of many years involvement with ceramics at Spode and a recent Arts Council of England Award 2014 (with artist Paul Scott) for research and development.

The tableware installation Spode Trees and Dressed Silhouettes takes the form of the aftermath of a dinner onto which printed imagery and texts found on the Spode Museum Trust Archive of engravings have been de-constructed, re-ordered and collaged onto the ware. The images and patterns cross over from one plate to another to create the impression that the women, presented in the form of silhouettes, have descended and are momentarily held in a seemingly random configuration. Women have often been allocated to the subservient role of both laying the table in preparation and the subsequent clearing up rather than being active participants. In this installation the women take ownership of their domestic landscape, moving effortlessly across the ware.
The installation is the result of many years involvement with ceramics at Spode and a recent Arts Council of England Award 2014 (with artist Paul Scott) for research and development. Charlotte Hodes and Paul Scott’s work will also be featured in a dedicated cabinet display at the Spode Visitor Centre as part of the BCB.
