LUIGI ONTANI – Serpentine Marathon 2010

dsc039061

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.

Costume selection help from Kasia Maciejowska, Pascale Berthier and Cerith Wyn-Evans!!

With thanks to Vanessa Boni and Nicola Lees.
