Serge: I would have to pick Utopian Bodies, simply because it was one of the biggest exhibitions we have worked on. The space was approximately one thousand five hundred square metres, and essentially encompassed eleven smaller exhibitions, where we worked with over two hundred objects. Rich with so many content and concepts, the exhibition’s goal was to look at ideas that we have about fashion and the body and how and where we can take them in the future. Each of the eleven galleries sought to present alternative ideas that challenged the audience’s perspectives on fashion, the body, and the future, looking at themes such as technology, resistance, craft, sustainability and so on.
For example, in the Sustainability gallery, we featured a prototype of an early solar panel that was invented in the 19th century, but then brushed aside once fossil makers took control. The idea here was to show that, over the years, people have come up with so many incredible ideas and innovations but many have been forgotten or rejected because they were so far ahead of their time or were not the most financially profitable, for instance.
