WE ARE FEROCIOUSLY RELIGIOUS
Georges Bataille - The Sacred Conspiracy (1936).
(caps. in orig.)
Dorothée Perret spring / summer 1999
Perret decided to get away from the customary runway show format, placing her designs throughout the space instead. Video clips were projected, cocktails were served and models wearing her creations moved among the guests. The forms are conceived as arrangements of different elements to be combined according to the wearer’s mood. Many items have elastic bands to hold them in place on the body without interfering with movement. These garments, with their muted colours and many buttoned openings, invite the wearer to experiment with their multiple possibilities.

Jusepe de Ribera - The Duel of Women (The Duel of Isabella de Carazzi and Diambra de Pettinella) (1636).
Jusepe de Ribera - Democritus (c. 1630).
Collection of the Earl of Pembroke, Wilton House
Ribera’s image of Aristotle is one of six imaginary portraits of ancient philosophers commissioned in 1636 by the prince of Liechtenstein. The artist’s conception of Aristotle as an ordinary man wearing a scholar’s skullcap and a ragged robe, a “beggar philosopher,” is a type that enjoyed great popularity in the 17th century. Ribera’s direct, naturalistic style and his dramatic use of light, both of which derive from Caravaggio, combine to create a powerful evocation of a philosopher deep in thought.
