From 1978 to 2008, Frida Parmeggiani was Europe's most sought-after costume designer. She worked with such legendary producers as Rainer Werner Fassbinder, Samuel Beckett, André Heller, and others, and as early as 1979, she did the designs for Wagner's Lohengrin at the Bayreuth Fes-tival. For the Salzburg Festival, she designed the striking and fantastic costumes for Expecta-tions/Bluebeard's Castle, Pelléas et Melisande, Mitridate, and Danton's Death. For this project, Parmeggiani for the first time worked without a dramatic composition, singers, or actors, so she can apply her minimalist design vocabulary in a static-sculptural manner. Precious fabrics combined with metal elements or set pieces from nature amount to highly aesthetic "Kleidergeschöpfe” (garment artefacts) as Elfriede Jelinek calls them. The exhibition spans nine new costumes, some of which comprise several parts. In these artefacts, Parmeggiani explores the tension between space, form, and fabric. undefinedmore...
