Chic Point (excerpt)
Fashion for Israeli Checkpoints
Chic Point juxtaposes the fashion show with a series of documentary stills from checkpoints, placing the spectator in a position that paraphrases the soldier's gaze. The haute fashion line transfers the marking from the body to the apparel, and to the ensuing playful possibilities inherent in the relationship between the clothes and those who are wearing and removing them. This film was shown as part of the exhibition A Prologue to the Past and Present State of Things, a part of the wider project Staging Histories, at Delfina Foundation, London, from 2 July to 15 August 2015.
