'Le regard de personae' by Malou Swinnen

From October 27 2011 till January 8 2012 Malou Swinnen exhibits the new series "Le regard de personae" at the MMH (Fashion Museum Hasselt)
Malou Swinnen (b. 1944, Neerpelt) lives and works in Hasselt. As an artist she enjoys a high reputation at home and abroad and her pictures are regularly exhibited. They are also part of several collections: Photography Musea (Antwerp and Charleroi), the Ministry of the Flemish Community, the Bibliotheque Nationale (Paris), and various private collections. The fascination for the face, skin, the pose, the look and attributes are constants in her work.
In 2010 she was invited by the Art Bank for artistic research. In connection with their exclusive collection of textiles and accessories she re-portraited the looks and the genre and in that way gets the series "Personae" (1995) a new follow-up.  This collection shows pieces from designers like Raf Simons, Hussein Chalayan, Martin Margiela, Walter Van Beirendonck, Ann Demeulemeester, Bernhard Willhelm, Rei Kawakubo and A.F  Vandevorst.

This may be your perfect opportunity to see PRINTS! if you have missed it.
