︎HOUNDS




   

THE COLLECTION »HOUNDS« DEALS WITH THE PHENOMENON OF MELANCHOLY. THE AIM IS TO PRESENT A CONTEMPORARY IMAGE OF THIS SENSITIVE SCIENCE: ESTABLISHING AN ALTERNATIVE IDEA OF MELANCHOLY, SHAKING OFF THE PREDOMINANTLY NEGATIVE IMAGE AND GIVING VISIBILITY TO THE AESTHETIC MOMENT. THE FOCUS PRIMARILY LIES ON NOSTALGIA AND MEMORY, A CERTAIN FEELING, LONGING AND SENSITIVE MASCULINITY — A »WUNDERKAMMER« OF MELANCHOLY, CONSISTING OF MEMORY FRAGMENTS. THE COLLECTION IS DEDICATED TO THE MELANCHOLIC HIMSELF AND THE MEMORABILIA HE DRESSES IN:
THE GRANDMOTHER‘S SWEATER, THE GRANDFATHER‘S COAT, THE FATHER‘S TROUSERS OR THE MOTHER‘S BLOUSE ...
