THE SURREALIST BODY
The “Surreal Body” circumvents the conventional meanings conveyed by dress and asserts a sexual and psychological component through trompe l’oeil illusions and unexpected juxtapositions of materials and imagery.
My other favorite part of the exhibit. The room is deceptively small, made to look bigger by endless mirrors that confused me and will surely confuse many more museum goers (I managed to avoid walking into myself). And if you look closely, the black and white portraits of folks in Schiaparelli gowns wink at you ;)
