N°14: MEMOIRS OF A ROBE OF EMOTION

Language and symbolism of an exceptional scenography.

A fascinating encounter between aesthetic and moral symbols, a timeless dialogue between traditional outfits and personal outfits: the wedding dress, a true lesson in fashion.

In order to explore the most unexpected effects, Olivia Luce Meyer offers the chance to navigate through the tangible and intangible cultural heritage rooted in codified rituals. Diverse and varied, the staging of this exceptional day is a highly stimulating exercise for the social and sentimental representation of a family, a generation, a period. Fantasy and vision of a status built by the collective imagination, weddings transport us to the boundaries of traditions and contemporary desires. A ceremonial costume of great subtlety.

Olivia Luce Meyer is the curator of the exhibition and a professor of history and sociology of costumes and fashion. She also gives lessons on costume design.
