For the ‘Arcadia’ exhibition in Diepenheim artists from all over the world were invited to travel to Diepenheim. They joined the popular culture and react to folklore, the neighbors and the splendid nature. For the exhibition Arcadia, which was curated by Hanne Hagenaars, MAISON the FAUX was invited to do some commissioned work, organize a fashion show.
On forehand of the exhibition, MAISON the FAUX visited Diepenheims inhabitants to take pictures of their outfits. With these pictures they made a distillation of Diepenheims so called ‘uniform’, which resulted in three outfits with prints. The results were shown at the Arcadia catwalk show, organized by MAISON the FAUX.
The Arcadia exhibition was accomplished by co-operation between curators, artists and inhabitants of Diepenheim.
