Commes des Garcons graces us with a Useless or Useful Exhibition.
From April 7 to May 7, 2010, Commes des Garcons in collaboration with Christian Astuguevieille, a Paris born and based artist, treats Hong Kong audiences to an unusual installation of the Useless or Useful. Cooking utensils – some dating back centuries and from all parts of the world – will be up on display. To make it a bit more unique than a standard museum showing, the utensils will be hand-sewn on different textiles and painted grey to render a new effect.
There will also be a jewellery exhibit, which will feature uncommon materials, such as rope, paper and fabric, forged into necklaces, earrings, and more. Some pieces will show these materials mixed in with more traditional pieces like rhinestones, leather or metal, combined in an unexpected manner. Audiences are invited to “adopt” the pieces and tell the company their unique story afterwards.
- The exhibition will be held at Comme des Garcons Under the Ground starting 7 Apr to 7 May. Selective items are available for sale.
