site-specific project for Criminal Aesthetic Fashion at the Skyscraper Club for Diana Lowenstein Gallery, Miami
When daily gestures are repeated endlessly, aesthetic monotony all around assails you, the dress you wear for the upcoming party is visually trite and your dreams are in the hands of the most trashy commercial product packaging; it’s time to get a move on and find crumbs of authenticity.
In a world where ideals have gone down the drain and only dreams can save us, we throw ourselves in a journey outside and inside of us, just like in a movie where the soundtrack reconnects us to special moments of our life. Only there we behave as a true Fashion Criminal, namely anti-conformist, politically incorrect, a leading figure in contemporary society who clashes against the flattening of emotions.
For this visionary club, González will dress the gallery exterior like a domestic spaceship with hand-sewn fabrics and lace.
