SERIE OF DRESS SCULPTURES ( 2 of 3 interactive)

Fashion can only unfold its true shape on the human body. Yet the three, seemingly classic, floor-length evening gowns no longer need a person, who wears them, but only someone who will look at them. While oneself is reduced to the role of an pure observer, they themself have gained vital functions that are usually reserved for living beings:
one is breathing, the other one has a beating heart and the third is warm - as if a body just left the dress ...

The three ladies are now the first time on display, as part of a group show of design related artists in residence at the Akademie Schloss Solitude.



here some videos of their functions:
