LE BORD DES MONDES Exhibition at Palais de Tokyo, Paris
18/02/2015 - 17/05/2015

Answering Marcel Duchamp’s question: “Can one make works of art which are not ‘of art’?”, the exhibition “Le Bord des Mondes” [At the Edge of the Worlds] explores the many fields of artistic creation and welcomes creative people from outside of the art world whose work would seem to belong to it through its depth, its beauty and its singularity. These artists – visionaries, experimenters, poets and pirates – reveal these unprecedented fields and defy limits.

Flow by Laura Falconer & Russell Maliphant

SHOWstudio is delighted to present Flow, a new fashion film by SHOWstudio regular Laura Falconer. A collaboration between the young filmmaker and choreographer Russell Maliphant, the dynamic film is an exploration of fashion in motion and features a piece from designer Iris Van Herpen’s Biopiracy show. As Falconer explains; ‘The fabric of Iris' dress is fascinating, the light dances across it as it moves. Working with Russell and Carys Staton (the dancer) enabled me to showcase this with energetic elegance.’

Palais de Tokyo exhibition

18 February till 17 May 2015, six of my dresses will be part of the "Le Bord des Mondes" exhibition at Palais de Tokyo, as well as work by Theo Jansen, Tomas Saraceno and many more.
"The exhibition “Le Bord des Mondes” is an invitation to travel to the farthest reaches of creation by revealing the prodigious investigations and inventions of a number of visionaries, beyond the traditional realm of art.
Situated at the edges of art and invention, the exhibition shatters the borders between worlds, between identified artistic territories and parallel worlds outside of the art system, by exploring the fertile precipice that can bring them together."
