Friday, October 29th, Modesuisse fashion show, I`m totally exited. During the break I caught a glimpse of Meesha Chang, the director of Erarta Galleries Zürich, too many people but here is a quiet corner, so Meesha tell me…
ElH: Do you think people initially wear clothes bc of shame, glory or guilt?
MC: I think people wear clothes for “glory” but all of these emotions are connected. If “shame” is the absence of glory we need to enhance this “guilt” and heighten it to bring it to the feeling of desire. Clothes can create desire or disgust.
I read once that “clothes are to keep our bodies warm and dry, fashion is to show our innermost dreams..” Naked is beautiful. To get naked or to this naked state is the point or goal- not strip poker persay but getting to the essence or purity of a thing. Being naked one feels a sense of freedom if there is balance and all the right elements or lighting :) hahahahha are in place. This naked state is made fascinating by mystery and anticipation - symbolic through clothes. What we choose to wear or have to wear on our little bodies represents our innerlife, innerkingdom, our relationship to the world and to self.
I also think if we did not wear clothes we would be very distracted by eachother and unable to concentrate on the braincommunication if the body is exposed. So we need to cover up to work and focus on the face :)
ElH: Can you imagine wearing no clothes at all? And if yes, why?
MC: I love clothes I love fashion. However, everyday you should also be naked and feel the sensation of no clothes even if just for a few seconds, and love it too. As soon as I come in the door home I always shed my clothes because I want to come back to myself. In this state you want to feel no shame no guilt, no glory, no clothes.
