FGI Tours Bellevue Art Museum A World of Paper, A World of Fashion: Isabelle de Borchgrave Meets Mariano Fortuny
For more than fifteen years, Belgian artist Isabelle de Borchgrave has been producing a completely original body of work that is easy to explain but difficult to categorize. Her central project revolves around recreating exquisite, life-size historical costumes and fabrics entirely out of paper. Taking inspiration from depictions in early European paintings, iconic costumes, period photographs, sketches, and descriptions, de Borchgrave skillfully works paper to achieve her aims: crumpling, pleating, braiding, feathering, and painting the surface to mimic textile effects and fool the eye of the viewer. The artist has forms spanning more than 500 years of fashion history. This exhibition presents one of these six collections, inspired by Mariano Fortuny, a Spanish-born eccentric whose designs were the height of fashion in the early 20th century. In the exhibition's North American debut, BAM is pleased to present Isabelle de Borchgrave's Fortuny collection in its entirety, offering a rare glimpse into the minds of not one, but two influential artistic figures.
