The Solution Sweater by Lisa Anne Auerbach
€495.00
DESCRIPTION:
Remixing symbols, slogans, hashtags and pixelated computer graphics is the signature of artist Lisa Anne Auerbach’s disruptive knits. With this very special piece, Auerbach offers both a confession and a solution: ‘I used to be part of the Solution/ Now I’m part of the Problem’ appears on the front and back of the sweater - with her advice to be found on the sleeve: ‘React Reject Repair Renew,’ along with an enigmatic post-modern observation: ‘Non Reality Based Reality.’
Make your statement, without having to say a word.
BUY THIS LISA GERNREICH PIECE AND SUPPORT THE ACLU: 100% OF SALES WILL BE DONATED TO THE FOUNDATION.
ABOUT THE 2018 COLLECTION:
The first Rudi Gernreich capsule collection (created in 2018) comes from LA-based artist Lisa Anne Auerbach. Best known for her knit sweaters carrying political missives – a unique twinset bearing the message ‘What’s all this talk of dying for Revolution? Live for it’ is now part of LA Hammer Museum’s permanent collection – Auerbach takes Gernreich’s political activism and quite literally knits it into the fabric of her designs.
LISA SAYS: “I’M INTERESTED IN THE WAYS THAT POLITICAL IDEAS CAN BE WOVEN INTO GARMENTS, AND MUCH OF MY KNITTING WORK INCLUDES SLOGANS, JOKES, AND IMAGERY THAT EMBODY VOICE. RUDI GERNREICH MADE GARMENTS THAT WERE, AT THEIR CORE, POLITICAL STATEMENTS ABOUT FREEDOM, GENDER, AND THE POWER THAT FASHION HAS TO TRANSFORM ITS WEARER. ON MY MOST POSITIVE DAYS, I BELIEVE THAT CLOTHING HAS THE ABILITY TO CHANGE THE WORLD, SOMETHING IT SEEMS THAT RUDI ALSO IMAGINED. HIS WORK OUTSIDE OF FASHION IS INSPIRING, FROM HIS ROLE WITHIN THE MATTACHINE SOCIETY TO HIS SUPPORT OF THE ACLU. IT’S IMPORTANT FOR ART TO TAKE AN ACTIVE ROLE IN DEFINING, QUESTIONING, AND CRITIQUING CULTURAL VALUES, AND WHEN A FOR-PROFIT BUSINESS LIKE A FASHION BRAND DOES THIS, IT’S IMPRESSIVE. IT’S AN HONOR TO BE PART OF THE RELAUNCH OF A BRAND THAT CONTINUES TO AGGRESSIVELY INTERROGATE FASHION."
