The exhibition presents a collection of archive Margiela pieces that form a narrative around the idea of voids. The looks are deliberately incomplete and displayed in a chaotic manner: heels come without the shoes, clothes are lying on the floor and some are wrapped in plastic bags… This curation creates a narrative and highlights the stories and theories behind them. The exhibition dives into a more evanescent narrative in which gaps must remain to embrace the whole, celebrating Martin Margiela’s famously absent persona.
“MARGIELA: IN THE VOID” is on view until April 5th, 2024 at the Parodi Costume Collection, Miami.
