September in the Red Fish Factory

 

Wrap the Body” - het omwikkelde lichaam

IMG_5754

vrijdag 10, zaterdag 11 en zondag 12 september

Red Fish Factory, Helmstraat 139

 

Na het grote succes van de eerste editie in september 2009 met de titel "Skin to Feel, Mode to Express" is de 'Design Universiteit Kobe' (Japan), weer te gast in de Red Fish Factory. 13 laatste jaars studenten van de afdeling textiel en mode presenteren hier hun werk.

 

'Wrap the Body - Wrap the Sensitivity”'

Dit is de titel die de studenten als opdracht voor hun eindwerk kregen. Oude wikkeltechnieken worden omgezet in subtiele, hedendaagse en kosmopoliete collecties. De resultaten zijn indrukwekkend en geven ons een idee over de Japanse manier van denken.

 

De Kobe Design University is een hypermoderne inrichting, die enorm veel mogelijkheden biedt aan de studerenden zonder de oude Japanse tradities uit het oog te verliezen. Tijdens hun studies maken de studenten kennis met het vervaardigen van garens en stoffen op oude en moderne weefgetouwen. Verven, stofbewerkingen en -verfijningen zijn eveneens Japanse specialiteiten. Traditionele technieken dienen als basis voor moderne kleding en textiel. Associaties met origami, inkttekeningen en aquarellen liggen voor de hand. Kleding om te dragen of kleding als sculpturen.

 

Kobe kreeg in 2008 de UNESCO titel 'City of design' toegekend en maakt daardoor deel uit als een van de 22 leden van The UNESCO Creative Cities Network waarin België met Gent als City of Music is vertegenwoordigt.

 

Red Fish Factory

Oorspronkelijk als confectie bedrijf voor nachtjaponnen en stoffengroothandel gebruikt

zijn de ruimtes in de Helmstraat 139 veel Borgerhoutenaars nog bekend van de Kringloopwinkel die hier gevestigd was tot zijn verhuis naar de Kroonstraat. Vandaag is het gebouw de creatieve uitvalbasis van het kunstenaars en design team Christoph Broich en Thomas Engels.
De ruimtes worden nu ingevuld met tentoonstellingen, showrooms en mensen met creatieve beroepen.
De tentoonstelling vindt plaats in de naaizaal van het oude confectiebedrijf en maakt zo een mooie link naar het verleden.

 

Professor Masataka NOGUCHI en zijn studenten zullen aanwezig zijn en graag uitleg geven over de werken.

 

Openingsuren: 10 tot 18 uur, gratis toegang

During their studies the students learn the basics of producing fabric and clothes, dying and yarning with traditional manners and sophisticated technolgies. The excelent equipped ultra-modern university on the one hand and the cosmopolitan city on the other hand form an innovative source of inspiration and creativity.

Christoph Broich @ the Chicago History Museum

render Chicago suntimes

press: Chicago Suntimes about the esposed outfit of Christoph Broich given by Gillion Carrara

GILLION CARRARA

She is: Director of the Fashion Resource Center at the School for the Art Institute.

She donated: An afternoon ensemble by German-born designer Christoph Broich.

What attracted her to the dress: I fell in love with it because of the way it was constructed. He took white cloth and used pins to create pockets, sleeves and pleats. He steamed the garment flat and then silk screened it black. When he removed the pins, the fabric fell open to reveal areas of white. He created a pattern by concealing part of it. Those who don't love avant-garde think it's strange. Those who do, love it.

Parting with a prized possession: I wore it so much, I finally thought 'OK, people have seen me in that uniform of mine, let's give it up.'
