Second Skin is a collective performance composed of 6 artists from Hong Kong, studying the complexity inherent in the wardrobe of our own choice and the broader background of today’s fashion industry. With a long history rooted in women’s clothing practice, fashion has always been a tool for expressing personal self and individual personality. In recent decades, the highly developed fashion industry has caused more controversy. Sustainability and human rights are also the primary considerations.
The participating artists discussed personal themes around fashion themes, such as conspicuous consumption, identity and body objectification, while also emphasizing the broader social problems caused by mass consumption machines, which seems to have become so in many fashions today. Considering that the turnover of seasonal collections is getting faster and faster, “Second Skin” will launch new works in the middle of the exhibition.
