It successfully follows, running through 25th March 2018Subhuman Inhuman Superhuman”, the exhibition featuring the work by Rick Owens, told by a catalogue by Electa (embodied in a special box in limited edition including also the unseen perfume he made, civet and grey amber scented). Twenty years are illustrated by memorabilia, catalogues, pictures, some were taken by Rick Castro – one of them features the father of photographer – fetishes, videos telling the artistic path by Owens along with garments and furniture.

The sulfur and timeless atmosphere, emphasized by the site-specific installation created by fashion designer, gives rise to a genuine Gesamkunstwerk, the idea of total work of art by Wagner where different channels of communication dialogue between themselves. The charming showcase depicts signes, ideas, suggestions, one of them reinterprets the performative experience by a legendary artist, Leigh Bowery, drawing a way beyond good and evil, a mystic synaesthesia where the beyond sanctifies human being in its instinctual rush and grotesque romanticism.

Storm and stress, the tension drama of individual, tender and feral, where passion, spiritual energy, reveals also as “friction between the soul and the outer world” (as yesterday the filmmaker Andrej Tarkovskji depicted at best in the masterpiece he made “Stalker”). A not to be missed happening which witnesses an essential chapter of yesterday and today conceptual fashion history.

Prosegue felicemente fino al 25 marzo 2018Subhuman Inhuman Superhuman”, la mostra che ha quale protagonista l’ opera di Rick Owens, raccontata da un catalogo di Electa (una special box in edizione limitata che contiene anche il suo profumo inedito allo zibetto e ambra grigia). Un ventennio illustrato da memorabilia, cataloghi, fotografie alcune di Rick Castro – una delle quali ritrae il padre del fotografo -, feticci, video che raccontano l’ iter artistico di Owens unitamente ad abiti e arredi.

L’ atmosfera sulfurea e senza tempo, enfatizzata dalla installazione site-specific creata dal fashion designer, dà vita ad un’ autentica Gesamkunstwerk, l’ opera d’ arte totale di wagneriana memoria in cui più canali di comunicazione dialogano tra di loro. L’ affascinante rassegna ritrae, segni, idee, suggestioni, una delle quali reinterpreta l’ esperienza performativa di un artista leggendario, Leigh Bowery, disegnando una via al di là del bene e del male, una mistica sinestesia in cui l’ oltre santifica l’ umano nel suo impeto pulsionale e grottesco romanticismo.

Tempesta e impeto, il dramma tensivo dell’ individuo, tenero e ferino, in cui la passione, energia spirituale, si rivela anche quale “attrito tra l’ animo e il mondo esterno” (come ha magistralmente dipinto ieri su pellicola il regista Andrej Tarkowskji nel suo capolavoro “Stalker”). Un evento imperdibile che testimonia un imprescindibile capitolo della storia della moda concettuale di ieri e oggi.
