LUIGI ONTANI – Serpentine Marathon 2010
I worked with il maestro Signor Ontani on the costumes for this performance piece. It took the form of a procession from the Serpentine Gallery to an oboe-accompanied tableau vivant at the Royal Geographical Society. The papier maché masks were hand-made in Italy. Each masked character represented a literary or art historical figure such as Aubrey Beardsley, Virginia Woolf, Francis Bacon, Reynolds via Gainsborough portraits.. references to references.
