Tolle neue Artworks von Vermibus, der zu den diesjährigen Fashion Weeks in New York, London, Milan und Paris gereist ist, dort Models auf Werbeplakaten und die Mode-Industrie metaphorisch in Säure aufgelöst hat. Fashion-Crap got what it deserves. Originale der Aktion kann man auf der Website der Open Walls Gallery auf Anfrage kaufen.

As benchmark events in the fashion industry, Fashion Weeks produce and dictate specific standards of aesthetics and beauty, and market them via their advertising: one more strategy in the globalization of Western consumer culture.

acid1The beauty-cult is as firmly established on the catwalks of every Fashion Week as it is in the advertising they generate. The fashion industry uses bodies as tools in order to sell goods and encourage consumption. The image of the body in advertising materials constrains and oppresses an individual’s true beauty, even as it conceals it behind the rhetoric of its own liberation.

In its new project, Unveiling Beauty, Vermibus rejected on this use of the body, and on standards of beauty imposed from above, within the framework of the Fashion Week circuit, via a series of public interventions. Unveiling Beauty, as the name suggests, reveals the beauty that lies hidden behind the make-up and the photographic retouching that are used both within the fashion industry and in the way it publically stages itself via advertising.

In September 2015, Vermibus has followed the route of the most in uential Fashion Weeks, travelling to New York, London, Milan and Paris. And he analysed and revealed the true beauty that was hidden behind the various campaigns that are imposed on the public spaces of these cities.
