PALMS. Visions of the good life. A dream, a hope, an escape from everyday life. With candles and ashtrays in the shape of palms or a glitter palm in an ice-cream sundae, we take a bit of it home—an admission that we dream a dream of great happiness, combined with a genial petty bourgeois mentality.

Art & Fashion

Zwischen Haut und Kleid
The boundaries “between skin and clothing” are fluid – as they are between art and fashion. Both meet in the space where new visual discoveries are made, where materials are tried out and current concepts of beauty are critiqued. Fashion designers use extreme hyperbole and fantastical exaggeration to re-interpret traditional ideas about clothing, or even the entire fashion system, and so change our understanding of these. The exhibition and catalogue explore this intriguing border region and demonstrate how these disciplines are interlinked in a constant process of investigation and inspiration: for example, in Rees’ leather skins, Le Mindu’s hair sculptures or the wax child’s shoe by Gober.
