SEE IT | Collage: When Realities Collide
Your eyes won’t believe what they’re seeing.
Pop art is made to look like a natural extension of the models’ bodies in Bela Borsodi’s Documenteditorial. From Borsodi’s blend of illustration and photography to make-up artist Valeriya Kutsan and Russian photographer Alexander Khokhlov’s transformation of model’s faces into 2D paintings, the body has become a canvas for art.
We’ve seen Damien Blottiere’s collages, and Barnaby Roper’s video for cosmic jewelry label Mania Mania had us hypnotized.
Jean-Paul Goude’s iconic Goudemalion photomontage was one of the earlier, modern renditions of this fascinating twist on reality. And his aesthetic continues to resonate today—Kenzo, helmed by Opening Ceremony’s Carol Lim and Humberto Leon, teamed up with the Parisian legend for the label’s S/S ’13 campaign.
Surrealist visuals aren’t going away anytime soon. For Kenzo’s S/S ’14 ads, Lim and Leon continue their collaboration with Maurizio Cattelan, Pierpaolo Ferrari, and Micol Talso to create a visually arresting campaign that playfully remixes cheeky elements of fashion and art.
Creative minds give us new ways of looking at the human body, altering our sense of dimension.
