The Department of Repair

Exhibition

Department of Repair: image by Bridget Harvey.

Bridget Harvey has co-curated a project at the Camberwell Space called The Department of Repair as part of her PhD research.  It is a two part project involving three weeks of workshops and exhibition, followed by three weeks of exhibition which will include the outcomes of the workshops.

The Department of Repair explores (re)making through fixing, repairing and mending. The project reframes the theme of ‘repair’, exploring its identities and its potential as an environmentally/socially engaged practice. The project aims to create space for broader interpretations of repairing, fixing and/or mending practice, exploring categories such as repair narratives, agents, materials, and methods/systems.

The project begins with an exhibition which showcases approaches to mending, guides and tools of repair. For the first three weeks, visiting (re)makers, (re)designers and repairers, who demonstrate and teach repair and re-making skills will run drop-in workshops. Outcomes from the workshops will be then added to the existing set of exhibits to form a larger exhibition.  A two-part publication will complement the project with writings by and about the repairers and exhibits involved in the project.

  • All workshops will take place at Camberwell Space as part of the exhibition.
  • All workshops are free and open to the public.

For further information:

The project reception will be held on  3rd February, starting with a talk by Daniel Charny at 4pm, followed by drinks in the space until 8pm.  Please RSVP to camberwellspace@camberwell.arts.ac.uk

The Future of Fashion is Now 

Exhibition
11 October 2014 – 18 January 2015
Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen, Rotterdam

The fashion artist and practice based researcher at the London College of Fashion Lara Torres is taking part this autumn exhibition at the Museum Boijmans Van Beuningen with her video installation ‘An impossible wardrobe for the invisible’ (2011).This project goes beyond the boundaries of fashion design to rethink the designer’s task and open a discussion about the importance of clothing and the transience of fashion and it is based in the creation of temporary clothes that are produced with the aim of being destroyed; leaving only the ‘memory’ of the pieces in video documentation relating to the ephemeral nature of fashion, also as a metaphor for the quickness of the fashion system today.

The exhibition ‘The future of fashion is now’ presents the future of fashion. A garment that reacts to emotions, lace patterns grown from a plant, fabric that breaks off and fashion that literally zips people together. Taking a critical view of the current fashion system, more than fifty international designers are showing innovative work at the cutting edge of fashion and art. With the latest generation of fashion designers from all over the world and renowned innovators like Viktor&Rolf, Martin Margiela, Hussein Chalayan and Iris van Herpen.
