Alice Villars – Mirù

Mirù is an exploration of the transmission and itinerancy of my mother’s life through interdependent objects, dresses and a book.

Clothes say a lot about someone. More than appearance, they are a fertile ground for graphic expression and self-expression.

I created five dresses using archive material. The composition of the dresses incorporates ornamental forms and graphic elements, pictures. Each dress becomes an address from my mother’s life, representing a particular atmosphere that gives clues to her story. The editing, meanwhile, creates a loop between the dresses and the book, a place where everything comes together.

Mirù plunges into the history and emotions of a life, conveyed through clothes and words.
