Theriaca – Shapes And Forms: Clothes, The Body


Curated by Risa Hirota, the exhibition Shapes and Forms: Clothes, The Body at Iwami Art Museum in Japan examines the echoes between the shape of a garment and the human figure, as well as the relationship between the two. It is also the first large-scale exhibition by the Berlin-based designer Asuka Hamada’s fashion label, Theriaca. This accompanying publication provides a more in-depth look at the designer’s background and influences, exploring her apparent fascination with an object’s fundamental shape, and how she uses experimental processes to “paint over” preconceptions and presumptions in an entertaining way, breaking free from the confines of the basic pattern.
