Unwearable Art Exhibition 12 August - 9 september - 2002


An exhibition to showcase three emerging artists.
They each use images of apparel in their work to comment upon today’s inheritance from the past.

Claire Butler uses vintage fabrics and work-box finds to make magical three dimensional pieces which take stories and writing from the past to comment upon the present and future.

Eleanor Ford looks to past fashion and the manipulation of the female form as her inspiration to create amazing appendages to hide the real body.

Vicki Aimers is interested in the different roles fulfilled by women, the conflict between these and the true self and the resultant underlying tensions.
