THE DRESS AS/IN ART
The artist, TINA CASSATI, designs and makes alone all Dresses (projects "sculpture le mode" & "giardino di arte" & the new project "giardino segreto") and costumes, ruffs, hats-, bags-, shoes- and jewelryobjects into modern surreale artworlds (installation, photography, illustration).
She sews, crochets, knits, draws and photographs (mixedmedia and collage).
She does not care about genres. Her work is influenced by Renaissance, Baroque, Traditional Clothing (Folk Costumes) fairy tales. To her, fashion is fine art.
Tina Cassati is very inspired of historical and particularly of Elizabethan costumes, eastern clothes, fairy tale, folklore as well as from the picture language of the Renaissance. The love for costume and before all to the theatre affects its work much. The fusion of philosophy, symbolism and different rituals from the past and the present as well as stories inspire the work of Tina Cassati, paired the whole with visions of the future.
Tina Cassati designs and creates no fashion collections, but only individual creations for their art projects (unikates).
