A sensory feast, this exhibition presents fashion as art and is a vital element of the Edinburgh International Fashion Festival.
The exhibition features; video installations by Hussein Chalayan; a video installation by Pam Hogg (with accompanying photograph by Rankin); a video piece by Ryan McGinley for Pringle of Scotland featuring Tilda Swinton; sensual hanging sculptures by Aurora Passero; a photographic installation by Wendy Bevan; a bejewelled installation by BEX ROX; work from South African photographer, Nico Krijno and NYC based photographer, Adrian Mesko; and an installation of Chanel and Galliano couture pieces personally chosen from her collection by Amanda Harlech.
Set within the dramatic surrounds of the former (Dick Vet) Animal Hospital at Summerhall, the exhibition challenges traditional attitudes to idealised beauty, presenting sumptuous pieces in an unexpected environment. Observing the blurred line between visual art and fashion, ‘Syn/Aesthesia’ examines the genesis and expression of the creative idea.
Suitable for all ages.
