In the installation Can we leave this male posturing bullshit till later? Gino Anthonisse investigates the role of wonder in his work by creating an alternative reality. He developed his sculptural silhouettes with modelling techniques and creates clothing that no longer needs a body and bodies which no longer needs clothing. These silhouettes come together in ever-changing life-sized collage installations consisting of clothing, body elements, photography and optical illusion.
The work has been on show in the exhibition New Fashion Narratives, curated by Fashionclash. Bureau Europa, Maastricht (NL), 17 October – 3 November 2019.
Later on, the project has been on show in a solo exhibition at Das Leben am Haverkamp (2020), as part of Vier Attracties, één Kermis (2021), The Hague Heritage at Heden (2021), Out & About at Nest (2022), The Roaring Twenties at Museum Kranenburgh (2022), Fitting In at Z33 (2023), in the office of Stimuleringsfonds Creative Industrie (present), and at Kunstschouw 2023.
