Artist Annette Meyer finds her inspiration in the meeting between consumer society and the human body. She is internationally acclaimed for her exhibitions of disposable clothing made out of wrapping materials from around the world.
The series of Paper Dresses that caught my eye showcase classic fashion cuts throughout history, from the 1800’s to the 1990’s. You can date some of the dresses just from the style. All are made from the same floral patterned paper based on prints from Flora Danica porcelain motifs. You can spot the 1950’s styles between the 40’s & 60’s - fashion really changed quite a bit in those decades.
