The exhibition curated by Michela Codutti.
The Master Theatre Costume Design of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts has a unique profile. It explores the borders between costume design and visual arts. The master year starts from a question chosen by the student. This personal subject is developed throughout the year. Research into different arts disciplines is stimulated by the teaching staff. Concept development, critical reflection, authenticity and innovation are key elements that are essential to help masters finding their personal signature.
The link with performing arts remains important since the presence of the human body is a reference for costume design. The result is a personal master project that reflects an autonomous choice by the master candidate. Theatre, dance, performance, photography, an arts installation, film or video are possible media to present the work.
The current exhibition in Venice presents a selection of works by the masters Visual Arts / Theatre Costume Design that graduated in 2018.
The 8 artists taking part in the exhibition and their works are:
Ruby Renteurs (Belgium) “Is perfection killing us?”
Cisse Royens (Belgium) “The landscape disappears, the view remains”
Vittoria Spadafora (Italy) “ Moving person”
Eleni Theodoropoulou (Greece) “Waiting room”
Elina Valdmane (Latvia) “Six ways to find your way home”
Sietske Van Aerde (Belgium) “1.000 costumes make one hell of a party”
Mieke Vandensande (Belgium) “Guide Lines”
Manuela Vilanova (Uruguay) “Invisible Unquiet Bodies, Still Silent”
