Black Angels 13-7
Anne Damgaard breaks the framework for clothing design and lets the dresses shape-transform through one medium after another – the drapes are not only fabric, but light and tones and images. It is clothing as a state of mind, and her dresses are arabesques of emotions and sensory experiences. The graphic beauty of Crumb’s score has turned into cuts, the notes are stitches, and the strings play with thimbles in dresses that are music and light and colors.
It’s high – level aesthetic clothing design, and we get a look into the laboratory – sketches and templates, photographs and clippings follow the process, which is just as much part of the final design. For Anne Damgaard, all boundaries are fluid, and the modern experience is in everything she touches: “All that is solid melts into air”.
