Shelley Lasica

Dress

In Dress, Shelley’s collaborator is fashion designer Martin Grant who created the 10 striking dresses with Julia Morison for the exhibition Material Evidence:100-headless woman at the Adelaide Festival in 1998.

In Dress we see the way a body behaves and is arranged by the physical habits of clothing. Rather than making a costume for a performance, Martin Grant designed an outfit that both defines and resists the performance of it. Dress was subsequently presented at Anna Schwartz Gallery as part of the Melbourne Fashion Festival.
