SALON/2 presents: BAS KOSTERS - Free Work 2010/2011 - Droog

"My exhibition is a collage of my free work from 2010 and 2011. Next to my latest dolls it contains a series of drawings made as communicative gestures sent into the world through my blog. Characters are an important part of my universe and I am most passionate about creating new individuals.   

Strings Attached is a new addition to a project that I started during my master at FIA (Fashion Masters ArtEZ Arnhem, red.)  There I designed an item called sliertie animeaux, and it is the inspiration for a technique that I now and then use.
This January I made three outfits for my fashion mutant collection, with the significant ripped fabric strings. 
I decided now is the time to go back to my original idea and create a major follow up that will be a starting point of a new series of works".
