An exhibition ALTER/MODE will feature two artists, Andrea Ayala Closa and Bogomir Doringer, who have chosen to work with fashion as a tool for artistic expression. The show takes place at 3 different places in Sweden.
The purpose of ALTER/MODE: a world in between: fashion beyond clothes is to function as a venue of dialogue. The artists Andrea Ayala Closa and Bogomir Doringer, influenced by different times, spaces and media, redefine the notion of fashion in the era of globalization. They showcase a world where fashion meets art; a world sprung from the theory that fashion is separate from clothes and their functionality – where the contradiction itself becomes a way through which to observe fashion. Ayala Closa exhibits at the Kleerup Gallery and Doringer shows his work at Weld. At the Architecture museum, a third room will be presented for the visitors. Functionning as a controlroom, it will feature two big screens showing the activity in the exhibition spaces Weld and Gallery Kleerup.
