Herbarium of Dresses

Forord til Annette Meyers katalog i forbindelse med vandreudstillingen Icon Dressed

The Icon Dressed installation has been shown in several museums, each time tailored to the specific space. The installation consists of 14 handmade paper dresses made from historical patterns and displayed on 14 handpicked mannequins. The floral designs printed on the industrial paper were taken from Flora Danica, a classic botanical work that also served as reference for an exclusive Danish china set of the same name. The fusion of high culture and low industry, already seen to be taking place in the material itself, creates a free space for new possibilities across time and space that is fundamental to the entire project. Music composed especially for the installation and human sized lenticular photos comprise a frame around the installation.
