Artist Wears Faux Nude Clothing At The Whitney Biennial
Garments designed by artist Georgia Sagri and designer Shabd Simon-Alexander feature screen prints of a naked body.
Artist and political activist Georgia Sagri’s 2012 Whitney Biennial performances showcase a range of garments and accessories featuring nude images. Designed in collaboration with Shabd Simon-Alexander, the ‘Georgia By Shabd’ collection includes T-shirts, jackets, gowns and skirts, which Sagri slips on and off during her interactive exhibit “Working the No Work.”
The garments feature screen prints of Sagri’s naked body, allowing the artist to make a bold statement by covering herself up with nude prints of her own body.
