Espinasse31, Milano Artist Residency
Milan, Italy (February 2018)
Leonor was invited to participate in the prestigious Espinasse31 Milan artist residency from February 1 – March 1, 2018. The work she produced during this residency was part of the Art Fucks Fashion exhibit which opened concurrently with the Milan Fashion Week 2018. The exhibit was a huge success, which led to articles written in over 12 renowned international magazines and newspapers.
Her project, Objects of Passion focused on the physicality of fashion, the connection among art, fashion and key icons of the fashion world.
” After her recent participation in The Venice Biennial, the Cuban artist Leonor Anthony has dedicated some of her time to new projects that connect her personal artistic experiences and the fashion world. She explains: “Fashion is wearable art, art that is alive, moving and ever changing. The two things are completely interrelated . Since all of my work reflect who I am and my voice regarding society and all its ramifications, it is extremely easy to link the two.”
In occasion of the exhibition, Leonor will be working on the project “Objects of Passion”, where the main focus will be set on the phisicality of objects such as bags, shoes and hats: “When one thinks of passion we think of shoes, material, clothes, glasses, even cars…all of these objects exude sensuality… Passion.”
