“The Enigma of Clothing”

2007 | Fashion in Film Festival at MoMI

Illustrated talk by curator Marketa Uhlirova

Total running time: 54 mins. Video and film. This program celebrates the secret life of clothes and the enigmatic qualities that emanate from the filmic treatment of their materiality. Clothes and cloth, when filmed independent of the body parts that normally give them meaning, are revealed as estranged, dreamlike, playful, and elusive—making them potent carriers of fascination, desire, emotion, and sensual pleasure. Musical score by Karaoke Tundra/Muteme.cz.
