MOCAK- Museum of Contemporary Art in Krakow

 

Between Sculpture and Fashion
Author: Halina Mroze

 
 

An individual exhibition by Halina Mrozek, a graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts in Kraków.
The exhibited works present the artist’s interest in the juxtaposition of art and fashion.
In her works, the artist depicts different psychological profiles of an individual, bringing into play her experience as a sculptor, which, here, results in works reminiscent of fashion creations. On show will be a selection of objects, together with session photographs and video.

Sculpt Couture’ is more than just the title of one of the series of works by Halina Mrozek. It is also the author’s own generic name for her artistic work. With this Anglo-French label, Mrozek has attempted to coin an internationally understood term which clearly refers to two fields: on the one hand sculpture, on the other fashion. Mrozek sculpts couture, with connotations of ‘haute couture’, with its eccentric one-off designs, made to measure in best quality materials.

For Halina Mrozek, fashion is contemporary sculpture. In her work, the two fields blur and merge, resulting in a new artistic category. The sculptor’s endeavour has been employed to produce work reminiscent of fashion. The opposite also applies: sewing becomes a sculpting process. Photo sessions and the resultant images – the fruit of collaboration between all sorts of stylists, photographers and producers – also belong to the area of fashion. Thanks to them, with every new session, each creation acquires a new dimension, in a different interpretative context.

Sculpture, traditionally considered a fine art, blurs with fashion, whose selected creations might aspire to be considered art, when one takes into account the unique collections of famous designers. Sculpt Couture tests one’s imagination through confrontation with materials which have not been destined to become a conventional sculpting medium, and yet, in the hands of the artist, they play a very important part. As a sculptor, Mrozek is fascinated by all sorts of textiles and the way they work, their form and their ambiance. Employing those materials to produce fashion-like creations, she imbues them with a new function and meaning.

Sleek, modern, contemporary cuts or constructs made out of plastic are juxtaposed with hand-woven, gentle, organic forms. However, in order to gain expression, these designs need to be presented on a person – a model, who complements them and demonstrates how they work in symbiosis with the human body. These creations are often sufficiently similar to ordinary clothes to be interpreted as a form of self-expression. Clothes may be seen as armour which both separates and defends us from the world around us. Equally, clothes are a non-verbal manifesto which conveys a message about how we wish to be perceived. Clothes enable an individual to hide weaknesses, but they can also enhance one’s strengths.

Halina Mrozek´s artistic search must be seen as part of a multilayer reflection on the relationship we have with our bodies and with our emotions.

The artist writes, ‘The body becomes a carrier of artistic form, the person and the clothes become one. The one and the same body – through fusion with an artistic object

– takes on different forms and acquires a different significance.’ Clothes, which in everyday life serve to express individual personality, in Halina Mrzek’s works become a clearly artistic statement, placed somewhere between sculpture and installation. The artist attempts to create a psychological image of an individual via artistic forms which capture the twilight zone between a mental state and an actual physical appearance
