It’s Western Canadian Fashion Week and tonight Terrible Karma: reverberations of the Triangle Shirtwaist Fire is being installed at Splash! – the official after party of Western Canada Fashion Week Spring 2011 & Silent Auction Fundraiser.
Splash! is taking place at 10507 109 Street, formerly Donovan’s Fashions (a high-end women’s fashion outlet in Edmonton). A re-worked version of Terrible Karma is being installed into the fitting rooms area, in tune with the works previous commitment to site-specificity.
Artist and creative producers contributing to Splash! were asked to make work that included new creations made from City of Edmonton leisure centre uniforms. These will be featured a silent auction of artwork and fashion fundraiser at the end of the night.
I too have incorporated the leisure uniforms into Terrible Karma but doubt any one would want to bid on them once they see what I have done with them!
