Carousels, candy floss, ferry wheels, colors, lights...happiness, the idea of the funfair a modern cockaigne. Thinking of todays amusement parks makes me nervous. It is too much of everything. Too loud, too sweet, too glaring. They are just lonesome places. A disturbing atmosphere of fake naivity. I made a collection of 7 outfits dealing with my mixed emotions for funfairs.
Using materials like examanition gloves, plexiglas,
pvc hose, metal washers in an unusual context I tried to achieve an unreal and suprising look. The silhouettes, which base on maidenly and feminine elements help to create a character of a child without virginity.
