Gray Box / Jaqui Taboo’s Fashion Showperformance
With Gray Box, fashion spills into the realm of performing arts and performance art, as it develops a strong aesthetic, conceptual, and physical relation to the body and to gender.
Jaqui Taboo is a queer fashion designer, interested in social phenomena, socio-cultural changes and sub-cultures. Through thematic collections, uncanny fashion performances, and interdisciplinary workshops, Jaqui Taboo’s work is an exploration of the performative, choreographical, dramatic, and ideological potential of clothes with a focus on cultural, social and heteronormative structures. From a feminist and queer theoretical perspective, the designer highlights the interactions and common territories between fashion and performance, questions body, sexual practices, and gender identity.
