About H1N1/Prêt à Porter
When arriving in Japan coming from Europe it is striking how many people wear masks to protect themselves from catching the swine flue recently. A few hours later diving into city life one quickly realizes that there are various mask models, not to say fashionable designs, on the market. H1N1/Prêt à Porter is a documentary project portraying people wearing these “fashionable” masks. It questions the pharma industry and it associated markets by displaying the products in a very fashionnable way. The models wearing the masks will wear state of the art make-up which visually colides with the masks and therefore strikes the mental models we carry of fashion and medicine.

What is your benefit
Each participating model will receive their photograph with and without wearing a mask in return for their effort. This art project will be on display at IAF shop from December 3rd until December 6th as part of Benjamin Füglisters solo show Luminous.Radiant.

    Este tipo de post son muy interesantes. Ayuda un montón para saber un poco mas de lo que se mueve en el mundo del arte contemporaneo en/de Japón, ya que es dificil saber lo que ocurre mas allá de Takahashi Murakami. Mil gracias.

    Pues me tienta ir, aunque veo difícil poder ir a Fukuoka este sábado 🙁
    Yo ya he tenido que llevar una vez una máscara de estas y la verdad es que muy cómodas no son.
