JUSTYNA KOEKE: PRINCESSES AND SAINTS. Nils Buttner. Arnoldsche Verlagsanstalt, Stuttgart, 2017. Distributed in the U.S.A. by Antique Collectors' Club, New York. 160 pp. 27 x 20 cm. ISBN 9783897904804 In English.
Due date: January 2017. Publisher's description: Justyna Koeke transforms children's fantasies into wearable sculptures and morphs fashion shows into performances. As a child, Koeke, together with her sisters, painted her heroes a from princesses to saints. She now brings them into reality as a collection of vibrantly colorful outfits chock-full of whimsical details. These tailored fantasies are brought to life on the bodies of ladies of advanced years. The publication presents the entire project: from the child-like naive drawings, via photographs of the dressed-up models before the sterile backdrop of their retirement home, to fun-loving fashion shows - an equally humorous and critical approach to the correlation of childhood dreams and the reality of getting older, in which the unsolved issues of an increasingly ageing society invariably resonate. The art project, fluctuating between sculpture, performance and allusions to the fashion world, was presented, among other places, at the Alternative Berlin Fashion Week in March of 2016.
