“Tanaka’s reiterative transformations make it clear that she is performing; we do not come to know the artist as an individual but instead witness the appearance of self as a facade, in all its changing manifestations.”
— Namiko Kunimoto on Atsuko Tanaka’s Stage Clothes, from Tanaka Atsuko’s Electric Dress and the Circuits of Subjectivity
Managed to see Antti Tuisku’s Silja Serenade show a week ago and wow what a show it was! As the costume designer it was nice to see how the clothing came alive on stage. The cruise ship spectacle will be followed by a concert hall tour around Finland.. You should definitely go and check it out!
