As part of The Virgin Australia Melbourne Fashion Festival Arts Program 2020, Phebe Parisia and Prenta X Studio will be undertaking REPETITION (INTERIOR TO EXTERIOR) #0001, a large-scale, whole room art installation, incorporating the release of a new limited edition artist scarf by Melbourne based artist and owner of Prenta X studio, Phebe Parisia.
The installation and responsive scarf edition focuses upon the relationships between art and design. The installed artwork is constructed from industrial woven PVC fabric and coated nylon fabric panels worked with hand drawn repetitive line work, the visually immersive work is predominantly wall-based, in addition utilising parts of the ceiling, windows, floor and studio furniture. The earring and scarf collection is in direct conversation with the installation, using line work, shape and form to create direct and strong visual and conceptual design relationships between the installation and the scarf.
For the viewer, the installation component provides an experience of being inside an artwork. The viewing body becomes part of the large and immersive work, extending the relationship between art and design to the wider public as a key audience and product activator. It ultimately highlights the conceptual connections between the artists practice and the resulting wearable objects. Conceptually, it is a material manifestation of repetitive action and labour in the production of art and object.
