‘dressed’ by belgian designer jens praet is a collection of functional art objects made of bronze dresses and brass under-structures, developed in collaboration with the designer’s father and artist jan praet – produced for washington and LA-based industry gallery. leftover and discarded fabric is submerged in hot wax, draped and shaped by hand over a rigid mold and consequently cast in bronze, the bronzed fabric surface is patinated with the familiar oxidized green color.

each piece is the outcome of different production steps, and in order to preserve the tactility of the material, most of the fabrication is done by hand. the pieces from the ‘dressed’ collection will vary in resulting color due to the unpredictable aging process characteristic of the bronze patina – resulting in a unique selection of furniture items. the work will be shown in december at designmiami/ 2012.

    where is the meaning
    more for the INTELLECTUAL high brows to talk about
    the art object to have a high price on it
