Hussein Chalayan "From Fashion and Back"

Museum of Contemporary Art, Tokyo

poster for Hussein Chalayan "From Fashion and Back"

This event has ended.

Fully established at the forefront of contemporary fashion design, the twice named “British Designer of the Year” Hussein Chalayan is renowned for his innovative use of materials, progressive attitudes to new technology and social criticism.

Motivated by ideas drawn from disciplines not readily associated with fashion, Chalayan’s pioneering work crosses between architecture, design, philosophy, anthropology, science and technology. His acclaimed runway shows function as performances which allow him to express important concepts. Hussein Chalayan has also presented film works and installations in art exhibitions. In 2005, he represented Turkey at the 51st Venice Biennale with Absent Presence, featuring Tilda Swinton.

This is his first solo exhibition in Japan. Through the presentation of fashion collection, films and installations from 1994 to 2009, the exhibition will comprehensively explore Chalayan’s wide range of works.

実は、あんまり期待してませんでした。
たまたま招待券を頂いたので、MOTアニュアルのついでに寄ってみたら、びっくり!
ファッションの展示じゃなくて、映像作品展で、映像作品で来ていた衣装も一緒に展示していると言った方が正しいかも。
一見シュールだけど、実は、中東戦争のことなどを取り上げた心にずどーんと来る素晴らしい内容でした。
キリスト教とイスラム教の関係など、日本人には遠く感じるけど、実は地球規模ではとっても重要なこと。
映像からじっくり感じられます。

チャラヤンの服を着たマネキンを見ていると、今の生活の中で着たいとは思いませんが、この服を着るような社会はどんなものなんだろう?というようなSF的想像力を掻き立てられます。

彼が生まれたキプロスという国について日本人はどれくらい知っているのだろうか?
