Tres vestits as part of my fashion collection called Un nosaltres impersonal were exhibited at Dress and undress bodies: Phenomenologies of appearance exhibition curated by Oriol Ocaña.
“The “performativity” potential of fashion, its generative capacity, lies in its eminently public character. It’s in this sense that fashion design has a special relevance in its capacity to act into our bodies. Fashion industry has not only standardize the gender identity due to the repetition of traits that you identify with something female or something male. But also, fashion industry has made a number of paradigmatic, desirable, canonical bodies, while trying to hide the deformity and the difference.
The exhibition propose a reflection thought fashion and art around the body. Our question is which is the boundary between fashion as a way of indoctrination and getting dress as a way of appearance, of thinking and being yourself.” – words by Oriol Ocaña.
The reality is the relation of subjects and objects, a network of endless connections. There is no “singular me”, the relations should be understood as a “plural me” or rather, an “impersonal us”. This is the basis of the intercorporality: the idea of merging bodies, blur the body limits to be aware that, due to the fact that I am my body, I discover me as a subjectivity that can not be absolute. From this perspective, the access to the other is not a problem: the other is no longer in front of me, otherwise I discover myself surrounded by the other.
These blurr of the body limits, abstraction of the outline of the flesh, is a poetic resource, a metaphor, a tool to rethink our ways of relating and so, the bodies and how they relate to dress.
