This project is inspired by the Vienna Actionism, which was a short and intense movement in the art of the 20th century. As one of the first ever public performances, Gunter Brus walked the streets of Vienna as a “living painting”, coated with white paint and a black stripe down the centre of his front and back. Regardless of the rumors of wether the act was staged, Brus was a part of the Viennese Actionists, one of the first artistic groups to use their bodies as their medium in aims of merging life and art. In the spirit of challenging the endurance of the public, and the ethical laws of society, I created visuals through photographs taken from some landmark protests when people ask for changes and awareness. Clothes been torn and pulled from the moments of protesters getting arrested. The process started with the creased textures and structures along with protesting slogans turn into embroidery details. By capturing these moments the collection is aimed to reminding people fighting for their rights. A fashion collection turns into a message to those who lives in a filtered world.
A study of the value of modern astrology
The project is based on the change of astrology through times. Astrology was established with a beautiful coexisting relationship between nature and the human-being, but in modern times, from the obsessions and experiences I had, it has become a means of profit making, fortune-tellers have captured people’s confusion in real life and desire to understand the future and seek self-comfort. Starting from re-examining the matter of divination and metaphysics, and investigated the artists who embody the value of their lives with man and nature as the core. Christian Boltanski, who conducted in-depth research on an artist The work Animitas and the related aesthetics that I see in its art works, combining with my favorite Japanese photographer Masao Yamamoto, who portraits relationship between human beings and nature in this work. By creating my own language of astrology through Ikebana (Japanese flower arrangement art), they become the signature design aspects through the collection.
