K8 Hardy’s work typically subverts common conceptions of fashion and consumerism, combining product close-ups, meticulous styling and staging. Her photographs and sculptures employee layering to confuse and undermine assumptions about class, economics, race and gender. She “teases out” the emotional meanings in everything – from clothes to figures in a landscape. “This blanket expression that you shouldn’t judge a person by their clothes is ridiculous to me,” she said. “Every article of clothing is so loaded with signifiers, I don’t know how you can help but make up stories about people and their desires based on what they wear.”

These fabulous photos of High Fashion creations come from the Punk CanCan Gallery at the Jean Paul Gaultier Exhibit on now through February 23rd, 2014 at the Brooklyn Museum. I visited two weeks ago and was completely blown away by how imaginative and fun this multi-gallery exhibit is. It is a must see for all lovers of art and fashion.
Punk CanCan showcases Gaultier’s blended vision of Parisian Classicism with London Punk.
Fabrics and materials range from leather and vinly/plastic to denim and metal or beaded accents.
This image of the Virgin Mary is the detail from the front panel of a long skirt.
Beaded Skull Detail from the back of a jacket.
This mind-boggling chiffon camouflage dress required 312 hours to make and was worn by Sarah Jessica Parker to the 2000 MTV Awards.
In the center of the Punk Cancan gallery, an automated Runway mimicking a Catwalk rotates mannequins in a circle around the platform. This makes it easy to just stand in one place to get the photos you want, allowing time, of course, for intruding heads and bodies to step out of the frame!
One can be seen in the above photo lifting a gigantic cancan skirt to reveal a kicking leg motif on the lining. Pretty clever!
