IN DA HOUSE 2020Albane Gayet (London 1994) grew up in UK / France / Switzerland / Greece. In 2016, she attends MA Fashion Womenswear at Central Saint Martin’s (London) where she develops her own visual identity: clothes shown as visuals elements (installations) without utility.
Albane Gayet (UK) February - March
Back in Paris (summer 2018), she instinctively starts to work with other mediums such as performance, video, installation, ceramics. She performs Wetness by Dipetsa and YGRG159: SULK and SULK III by Young Girl Reading Group. Since January 2019, she has been designing an underwear collection made of leftovers from her MA garments. She works with artists Egle Kulbokaite and Dorota Gaweda (artistic direction, costumes) for the performance YGRG 154: BODY HEAT III. These works aim more at creating new imagery rather than clothes serving their original purpose.
During her first residency (Athens 2020), Albane will explore the process of memorisation applied to her personal experience. Study of memory, matter (earth and body) and decaying as a life cycle expressed with performances in nature / archeological places and practices dealing with senses (projection / sound piece / scents).
