Camouflage Postad av: Archileaks, Datum: 2014-10-23
New Exhibition at FFAR: Camouflage – the background melts into the body.
Art, fashion and architecture negotiating the threshold between ourselves and our surroundings Oct 24 – Nov 9.
The body, that´s you. Your eyes, nose and skin. From your fingertips to the soles of your feet, inside and out – experiencing, anticipating and reacting. The environment, thats everything else. The pavement you walk, the information you exchange, the spaces you inhabit. But the distinction is a smoke screen. You are part of the environment, and the environment is part of you. There is an overlap, a threshold condition between yourself and your surrondings. This exhibition is about that threshold and the ways it can be expressed and reimagined.
Let's call it 'camouflage'. You can think of it as a shortcut to being aware of your surroundings and your place in it, both at the same time and one dependant on the other. Not only does the body melt into the background – the background melts into the body.
