Radicals was an open-air exhibition on the banks of the Scheldt (Sloepenweg) near Het Eilandje. Twenty advertising billboards several metres high, with three-sided rotating panels, were set up in a circle.
Each billboard showed three photographic fashion statements by a single domestic or international designer. In each case, one of the three radical and visually powerful images was made especially for this exhibition. The images did not offer any obvious approach to the topic of fashion, but were visualised fashion statements that revealed a vision, personality and artistry.
Radicals was one of the exhibitions of the fashion project Mode 2001 landed geland, curated by Walter Van Beirendonck. May-September 2001.
