Costume and Felt

April 16, 2010

Last weekend I went to see the opening of a show by  Angelika Werth ,   Madeleines and Ladies in Tents.   Quoting from the Angelika Werth website –  “Madeleines is a series of twelve sculptural, felted dresses made for the use of historical figures and their imaginary engagement in athletic activity.”
They are  beautiful, inspiring and thought-provoking.   They are also wearable (maybe only for short periods of time!)  and I felt (pun not intended) like I would like to try one on.

There were also Tent Dresses (made from deconstructed tents) and quilted wall art (using bras and felt).   I would love to see the rest of the felt dresses – only 6 were in this display.
