Artist: Monika Zabel


This Textile Sculpture is inspired by the Golden 1920s with its love for succulents as an avant-garde plant at home and in the arts, and their emerging gender fluidity in dress codes and hairstyles. A century later, at the beginning of the 2020s, the world is shaken by a  disrupt. Live has become more rooted in nature. Symbols  are rewritten for  a Green 2020s. A cactus stands for a water wise plant, deconstructed & redesigned garments for climate conscious clothing with nature in mind. Gender fluid dress code dilutes the border between women's and men's wear and opens up for more diversity (/d) and inclusion. The textile sculpture flower power was first shown at 2020 International Fashion Art  Biennale in Seoul as Germany's contribution (with a female model in a live performance) and at the FABI Fashion and Textile Exhibition on Art Innovation (pictured by Jean Molitor) .
