Kvindelig seksualitet i ikke-kropsnær beklædning

Kvindelig seksualitet i ikke-kropsnær beklædning
Supersexet tøj er naturligvis stramt og eksponerer den kvindelige krop til mindste detalje. Eller er der et alternativ? Michelle Brandstrup gør op med objektiviceringen af kvindekroppen og viser os, hvordan tøj kan være løstsiddende og stadig hylde den kvindelige seksualitet. Den japanske designtradition har inspireret hende til alternative måder at arbejde med krop og seksualitet på, og hun inddrager elementer som bevægelse, transparens og lag-på-lag-teknikker både i print og form for at skabe nysgerrighed hos beskueren om den krop, der er under tøjet.

Female Sexuality in Non-close-fitting Clothing
Super sexy clothing is obviously tight-fitting exposing the female body down to the minutest detail. Or is there an alternative? Michelle Brandstrup addresses the objectification of the female body and shows us that clothes can be loose-fitting and still pay homage to the female sexuality. The Japanese design tradition has inspired her to experiment with alternative ways of working with body and sexuality, incorporating elements such as movement, transparency and layer-on-layer techniques both in print and in form in order to create curiosity in the viewer about the body that is hidden underneath the clothes.
