__fabrics interseason locate their works and projects using the co-ordinates of fashion and design in general, contemporary fine arts, cultural history performance and electronic music. Their projects, performances and collection presentations are based upon concepts developed from an intensive research of socio-political discourses and phenomena. __fabrics interseason are interested in the codes which manifest themselves in individual and collective clothing patterns, in identity-generating values and in their readability. Their monumental installation for Manifesta 7 is based upon a playful interaction of remnants of modernist codes and references that reveal the contemplative aura of a “Mediterranean atmosphere.” This features a canopy of semi-transparent fabrics suggesting an alternative to ethnic exoticism and the lure of the global, and an asphalt surface as a stage-like platform, recalling both the post-industrial agora and the place of repose. The Spartan theatrics of __fabrics interseason includes modern fragments of “dominant design,” an eclectic pseudo-archaeological site of public discourse and private wellbeing. Surrounded by ruins of architectural and industrial order, the artists critically exercise the rituals of social and cultural folding and disassembling thus generating a Brechtian effect of alienation, an unfamiliar landscape where time, space and cultural memory conspire in order to produce a credible sense of collective history, beyond any singular or regional dimensions.
