Paper outfit by Estonian Academy of Arts students

Tutored by fashion designer Marit Ilison, a group of Estonian Academy of Arts students created different outfit crafted from paper. They were limited to using paper from a single company though they had free reign over colours and forms.

The outfit’s photo set styled by Ilison was used to create a calendar for paper brand Antalis. “I selected best 12 outfits from 24 participators, then I proposed the idea of a calendar to Antalis and they liked it,” said Ilison. “Later we selected and decided which photo would portray which month.”

The first two wintery pieces were made from white sheets, with January’s design comprising layers of circular sections with strips cut out. For the second, long tubes crossed the body to form a sculptural dress while shorter rolls were stacked into a headpiece.

Moving into Spring, floral shapes adorned outfits as geometric seed pods and then scrunched up pink petals. July’s offering saw the material edged in red, looped tightly back and forth to create giant ruffles similar to Elizabethan neck pieces.

Colours became more sober on the autumnal garments, particularly the collection of brown shapes built up around the body and extended over the head that looked like leaves ready to fall. For December reams of colourful ribbon-like strips splayed from the shoulders and curled up by the ends, with some tied in a bow at the neck.

REN HANG, PHOTOGRAPHY

Art | October 27, 2020

Flesh, corpses, souls and bland flashlights, all composite into seconds or milliseconds of lights and shadows, projecting onto the film that never knows how to lie. Focus gathering and the shutter releasing, connecting his unpretentious, rebellious, wild and free perspectives towards the naked human body. The images look so natural, yet fun and unexpected. One soul after another all blossom like a newborn baby, urging to crawl out of his mother's womb, dying to be redefined. In this era that we live in, being censored by the Chinese government has almost become a stamp of approval for contemporary artists. Ren Hang, a young man with a mature look and tanned skin, hair as short as a Chinese soldiers', always carrying an irresistibly cute and innocent smile on his cheeks. He is, perhaps, the sole artist and photographer with the most edgy outlook towards the naked human body. Read more
