After the Wearable Art Gala CHACUN(E) was asked to stay fo rthe Saskatchewan Wearable Art Exhibition. You can see the piece in Canada from 28.Feb – 12.April 2014
The dance corset custom made for Angelina Deck’s performance CHACUN(E) about interconnectedness, consists of many little crocheted snowflake shapes, that are dyed with thermochromic pigments and connected by hand stitches to one another. They move together with the dancer’s body and transform the shape of the costume, pattern and sizes. By the temperature change in the ambient or dancer’s body the thermochromic black color becomes transparent revealing the colorful original colors of the yarns used to crochet the snowflakes. The dancer becomes aware of her own body temperature and can react to the playful subtle change created by her own movement. The garment reacts differently during every performance due to difference of movement, ambience, weather, dancer. It creates a very close and intimate unique non recurring interaction between the dancer and the costume.
Materials: grey tricot knit fabric; black thermochromic pigment 27C; cotton, wool and viscose yarns; elastic ribbons.
Techniques: Hand crocheted; hand dyed; hand sewn.
Year Completed: 2013
