by Edwina Hörl and Andreas Seibert
The Impossible Project Space Vienna shows a unique exhibition that flows contemplation of loss and recovery from May 29 until June 16. So far only presented at the Impossible Project Space Tokyo, this fashion project will now be exhibited for the first time in Europe within 12 festival for fashion & photography.
涙 – NAMIDA combines a unique blend of fashion and analog instant photography, created by the Austrian fashion designer Edwina Hörl and the Swiss photographer Andreas Seibert. The choice for Impossible instant film was a purposive one, as a working bases with chemical alterations it reflects the transiency tangibles.
Last year’s Tsunami in Japan forcefully confronted us with this transiency of things, destroying the life’s of thousands of people. The fashion project 涙 – NAMIDA (tears) was especially created for Japan and is dedicated to those people who are still suffering of natural catastrophe’s severe impacts.
The dramatical voids in the lifes of the affected people are reflected in the photography exhibition. Tokyo based photographer Andreas Seibert created collages with the single instant images, inevitably creating gaps and voids which leave an incomplete impression and reflect the experience of the people in Japan.
