CRAFTSMANSHIP

‘Exercise I’ is a collaboration between POAN and Daniel Lismore, which gives its buyers the birth of an artwork. The project entails live garment painting by the artist, thus blurring the boundaries between ‘boutique’ and ‘gallery’, ‘art’ and ‘fashion’. This liminality strongly echoes Lismore’s own extravagant style, which notoriously turns clothing into sculpture and vice-versa. The exclusive hand painted garments are available for purchase, allowing their owners to immerse themselves in the wearable works and interact with art in an unprecedentedly intimate way. Limited availability.

WHAT'S SPECIAL / FINISHING

Lismore’s notoriously eye-catching outfits, which earned him Vogue’s title of
‘England’s Most Eccentric Dresser’, come at the price of constant scrutiny and judgement. Consequently, the drawings displayed at ‘Exercise I’ are the artist’s way of staring back at the crowd. By depicting the individual faces that make up the crowd of curious onlookers, Lismore himself becomes the observer and playfully reverses the roles of ‘watcher’ and ‘watched’. Lismore’s focus on portraiture not only counteracts the pointing fingers and gaping mouths, but also places the visitor into the artist’s shoes. Surrounded by an intimidating multitude of staring eyes, the viewer becomes the centre of attention, thus subverting the conventional ‘artwork-to-viewer’ dynamic. Thus, ‘Exercise I’ becomes a striking reminder of the fact that everyone stares – people of all ages, genders, backgrounds and sexualities. And so do Peoples Of All Nations.
