BEA SZENFELD’S PAPER COSTUMES FROM ”HAUTE PAPIER”
Images created by The Royal Swedish Opera with
With scissors, tape, string and thousands of paper sheets, BEA SZENFELD has created extraordinarily unpractical creations that together form “Haute Papier” – The White Collection. The handmade costumes have been worn by artists such as Lady Gaga, Laleh and dancers, singers and musicians from The Royal Swedish Opera.
– I love the combination of Dansmuseet, my paper costumes and The Royal Swedish Opera, says Bea Szenfeld. It is both unlikely and obvious at the same time. Paper costumes and dance, let’s do it! Through the scissors and the body everything is connected, the tough but wonderful craft.
A ballerina swinging in a chandelier, musicians among hundreds of travelling bags, singers dressed in the costumes of Bea Szenfeld and other surreal scenes are also shown in the exhibition. These are images by KAROLINA HENKE, CARL THORBORG and STINA WIRSÉN, created for and in collaboration with The Royal Swedish Opera.
POMPE HEDENGREN, creative director at STOCKHOLM GRAPHICS, has worked four years together with The Royal Swedish Opera and the photographers to create the world that you now are invited to enter.
