Can we make a catwalk in two hours?
Try out new ideas, bring your own projects.
Meet other people, pick each other's brains.
Chat is open. DMs are Open.
A making session exclusively for EOP members conducted over Zoom, looking at how basic items and recycled materials can be magically and quickly transformed into transcendent performance costumes, with Bruce Asbestos.
It’s a chance to try out some new ideas, pick each other's brains, and momentarily get that feeling of a busy studio pre-catwalk, and be inspired by other people’s work.
Bruce will give an extremely brief intro to his work and show some of the more cranky-janky looks from his previous catwalks, including Bruce Asbestos x Juliana Sissions, which included recycled paintings. In the session, Bruce will be making alongside you probably with cardboard and a hot glue gun, based on food. He suggests that you might use the same materials, but feel free to bring along projects that you haven’t started yet or are half way through. And if you’ve not got cardboard and hot glue then use any materials and processes that you feel have potential.
We will use the zoom to chat whilst we attempt to make something amazing out of something that is not, and feedback, encourage, chat-a-round subjects as and when it’s needed. We will finish with an extremely rough around the edges no pressure, no shame, Zoom catwalk an *Exquisite Corpse or sorts. This session is for people interested in performance, catwalks, fashion and anti-fashion, and making a lot, out of not a lot.
*Exquisite Corpse is the working title of a new multi-artist catwalk pencilled in for 2022.

"Through his shrewd use of social media, personal re-hashing of global pop culture and use of new digital technologies, he has established an unmistakable visual identity and unique brand (complete with logos) to almost become a ‘living artwork’." Art Review
"This is Art for the social media age" The Stylist
