For the temporary exhibition "Apparences", Château-Chinon Costume Museum offers a humorous staging around appearances.
Apparences confronts the world of textiles with that of visual animation, a series of costumed mannequins with moving images. Photographic series made by Edward Muybridge around 1880 extend the costumes. Through a fresco of images, on-situ projects these costumes through a selection of human-sized (chrono)photographs. These sequences of animated snapshots depict the exaggerated daily use of the costumes on display.
The play of appearances then takes on its full meaning and approaches seduction and the evolution of society from a completely different angle.
