Garage Exchange: Constanze Schweiger and 69

The artist Constanze Schweiger invites the fashion house 69 for an exhibition collaboration.

Considering the ties between art and life by combining activities such as object-making, reading, writing, and publishing, Constanze Schweiger makes art which is multidisciplinary. Schweiger has invited the non-gender, non-demographic fashion house 69 to collaborate for this iteration of MAK Center’s Garage Exchange, where they will extend their ongoing use of denim with a large-scale installation. Further exploring this experiment in impermanence, 69 has created the entire alphabet in the same material for visitors to arrange as they wish. Schweiger will also dye a roll of cotton muslin with turmeric powder to hang for drying on a steel wire spanned across the length of the Garage Top Gallery space. Day by day, the sun will cause the infused dyestuff to change from bright yellows to pale beiges. It’s a great study in textile dyeing techniques, so come visit if you can.
