Creature invasion! Spilling down off the catwalk...

From Alexander McQueen to Andrea Crews, Craig Green to Walter Van Beirendonck, Arrrgh! presents a selection from fifty-eight contemporary creators who, inspired by design, animation and sketches, use monster form and expression in their costume and clothing designs. Following the blueprint established by Pictoplasma, an exhibition held at La Gaîté in December 2011, the contemporary characters who first came to life in the field of character design have discovered transferable skills, opening doors in the world of fashion!

Do you dare to mix with these monsters? The strange, the unnerving, the seductive or pop? Rub shoulders with around eighty creatures, who'll be spilling down off the catwalk with one desire: to get to know you better. ARRRGH! questions our conceptions of beauty and identity. Freed from all constraints, the creators are pushing the boat out to present their most avant-gardist work, disolving the barriers between costume and clothing design.

Complete list of artists and designers on show: ALEXANDER MCQUEEN (UK), ALEX MATTSSON (SE), ALEXIS THEMISTOCLEOUS (CY), ANDREA AYALA CLOSA (ES), ANDREA CAMMAROSANO (IT), ANDREA CREWS (FR), BART HESS (NL), BAS KOSTERS (NL), BERNHARD WILLHELM (DE), BORIS HOPPEK (DE), BRONWEN MARSHALL (UK), CASSETTE PLAYA & GARY CARD (UK), CHARLIE LE MINDU (FR), CHI HE (CN), CLAIRE MICHEL (FR), CRAIG GREEN (UK), DAVID CURTIS-RING (UK), DIGITARIA (GR), DR NOKI'S NHS (UK), ERIKA MIZUNO (JP), FREEKA TET (FR), FILEP MOTWARY & MARIA MASTORI (CY & GR), GEORGE TOURLAS (GR), HELEN PRICE (UK), HENRIK VIBSKOV (DK), HEYNIEK (NL), HIDEKI SEO (JP), ISABEL MASTACHE MARTINEZ (ES), ISSEY MIYAKE & DAI FUJIWARA (JP), JEAN-PAUL LESPAGNARD (BE), JOSEFIN ARNELL (SE), KIM TRAEGER (DK), LEUTTON POSTLE (UK), LUIS LOPEZ SMITH (UK), MADS DINESEN (DK), MAISON MARTIN MARGIELA (FR), MANON KÜNDIG (CH), MARCUS TOMLINSON - GARETH PUGH (UK), MAREUNROL’S (LV), ON AURA TOUT VU (FR), PERNILLA WINBERG (SE), PAUL GRAVES (US), PICTOPLASMA (DE), PIERRE-ANTOINE VETTORELLO (FR), PIERS ATKINSON (UK), REJINA PYO (KR), RICK OWENS (US), ROZALB DE MURA (RO), SHIN MURAYAMA (JP), SOTIRIS BAKAGIANNIS - THEPERSONWHODIDTHIS (GR), TAKASHI NISHIYAMA (JP), THE BRAINSTORM DESIGN (GR), TRACY WIDDESS (CA), TOMA STENKO (RU), URBAN CAMOUFLAGE (DE), WALTER VAN BEIRENDONCK (BE)

 

 

An exhibition from La Gaîté Lyrique
and Greek collective ATOPOS

ARRRGH! Monsters in Fashion is based on an original idea from Vassilis Zidianakis, in association with Angelos Tsourapas. Scenography by Stamos Fafalios.

ATOPOS Contemporary Visual Culture (ATOPOS CVC) is a non-profit founded in Athens in 2003 by Stamos Fafalios and Vassilis Zidianakis. Its aim is to promote innovative contemporary visual culture projects, with a particular focus on the human form and costumes. The name ATOPOS is inspired from the Ancient Greek, "άτοπος", denoting the strange, unwonted, eccentric and unclassifiable.
