Arnhem Mode Biennale 2011: Special Projects
From the first of June till the third of July the city of Arnhem is all about fashion. During this month many events will be held and expositions will be open. There’s so much to do and to see you might wanna head to Arnhem a more than once. Besides, there’s one more reason to go back since some of the expositions change throughout the month.
For instance, there’s this installation made by A.F. Vandevorst. It shows a girl sleeping in a hospital bed completely made out of candle wax. This candle was lit during the opening of the biënnale and will slowly melt down during this month.

Then there is the Juun. J installation; a series of trench coats in the same color. Though the trenchcoat is quite timeless and classic in fashion Juun. J lets his trenchcoats evolve. For a month the hourglasses placed above the coats will cover the garments with sand. We’re curious how the coats are going to look within a few weeks…
The third installation that will look completely different within a month is the one created by Amie Dicke. She filled a space with her personal belongings that together created a room full of memories. Above these items an installation was placed with a number of spray guns attached to it. During the next month those spray guns will spray 100 liter of foundation (provided by L’ oreal) on all personal items. The many layers of foundation will cover up all colors and make it into a room in just one tone. A radical male-over.
