Utopian Bodies / Fashion Looks Forward

About this project

These carved mannequin arms were commissioned by Museea for “Utopian Bodies – Fashion Looks Forward”, Liljevalchs, Stockholm for the Craft and Form Room.
“Utopian Bodies: Fashion Looks Forward” maps out imaginable futures for the adorned body and focuses on the positive aspects of fashion, rather than expatiate on the problems. How can fashion be harnessed to create a better future? How does fashion relate to the human body, to us as individuals and groups, and the world around us?"
