Costume and Felt
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.
