obake - BRUTAL WHITE
in COLLABORATION WITH BENJAMIN HANCOCK, JAMES ANDREWS & MICHELE VESCIO
Indicative of her increasing movement toward an art-based practice, OBAKE - BRUTAL WHITE is a more dream-like investigation, of La Fey's 2017 BRUTALIST theme.
Two transformative creations were meticulously handcrafted from 20m of silk organza, their metamorphosic possibilities brought to life when inhabited by the human body.
Teaming up with ongoing collaborators, performers Benjamin Hancock & James Andrews, sound artist Michele Vescio and hair&makeup artist Jessi Leigh, the work was first presented at the opening of MFW 2017's FOR CURIOUS EYES ONLY EXHIBITION as an initial exploration of the work with an intent to further develop OBAKE - BRUTAL WHITE for future performance installation and moving image presentation.
