(U)topian Silhouettes

This initiative will take a closer look at the meaning of the term silhouette in order to recognise the transformations experienced by the body depending on the garments covering it. Discovering the actions of garments on corporal forms and understanding their meanings are some of the experiences encompassed by the activity. Families will create new silhouettes based on an original method created by the surrealists and based on the old pastime Consequences.
