The Closet Two: The Beautiful Shoes of Catherine Deneuve
17 March, 2015
Outset Greece supports the series Closet Two | The Beautiful Shoes of Catherine Deneuve that will take place at the House of Cyprus as the second part of the series The Closet / Reading night, on Wednesday 18th March 2015 at 8.00pm.
An extravagant script, balancing between a postmodern confession and a delightful essay on Fashion that Roland Barthes never wrote, the contemporary American author Kevin Kopelson creates the absolute meditation for the body and its affiliation with clothing, about the Myth-Fashion and all its connotations that we love to hate… With a dreamy title 'Those Beautiful Shoes of Catherine Deneuve' (2013), Kopelson is contemplating on the recipes, the perversions, the intentions, the deceit, and all the eccentricities and peculiarities of Fashion nowadays. Along with this formal text, The Closet Two also presents some shorter texts as accessories. Prose and poetry, sewed elegantly by Suzy Menkes, Andy Warhol, Bunny Rogers, Wayne Koestanbaum, Quentin Crisp, Kate Summerscale, David Trinidad, Cecil Beaton and more. The sound cover of this evening would ideally be the voice of Nico singing and asking… And what costume shall the poor girl wear to All Tomorrow’s Parties…?
Texts to be read by: Dimitris Antonitsis, Artist and Curator, Stavros Christos Vlachakis, Artist, Kostas Vogiatzis, Founder of Yatzer.com, Aliki Georgoulopoulou, Choreographer, Dimitris Grammatikogiannis, Fashion Curator, Christina Kalli, Independent Curator and Marilena Karra, Art Historian. Cameo: Stavros Kavallaris
