Mirror mirror: cultural reflections in fashion
Mudam – Musée d’Art Moderne Grand-Duc Jean,
Luxembourg
October 30, 2021 – April 18, 2022

This new collection display showcases the diversity of artistic disciplines that have defined Mudam’s collection since its inception. Curated by design consultant Sarah Zigrand, the exhibition focuses on the museum’s holdings in fashion, offering an insightful take on the collection.

Zigrand made a selection of pieces by nine designers from Europe and Asia. Most of these creations will be exhibited at the museum for the first time. Predominantly dating from the turn of the 21st century, they represent a pivotal period in which fashion echoed the critical changes taking place in society. These include shifts in both ideas and behavior: the growth of the Internet and digitalization, accelerating globalization, and the challenging of gender stereotypes that emerged at that time.

The multiple references deployed by these designers and the way in which they are combined with and contrasted against one another can be seen to link the designs presented in mirror mirror. Presented within a scenography devised by designer Georges Zigrand, the display follows a fluid path of crossovers and intersections, reflecting the hybrid nature of these pieces. The mix of genres – from chic to sporty – in the work of Helmut Lang; the subversion of social and dress codes in the creations of Bernhard Willhelm and Walter Van Beirendonck; and the blending of cultural identities in the designs of Hussein Chalayan are brought together. The vitality of the experiments with form and fabric can also be seen in the deconstructive work of Martin Margiela and Junya Watanabe, and in the innovative techniques and materials adopted by Grit and Jerszy Seymour and Hiroaki Ohya.
