INTRODUCING - UNIFORM OF GREAT HOPE {TOBIAS BIRK NIELSEN}

Introducing Tobias Birk Nielsen, a recent MA Fashion graduate at the Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts and Design, as well as previously assisting at Boris Bidjan Saberi, Barcelona and Wood Wood, Copenhagen.

”My work is mainly motivated by dogma and conceptual experimentation. I’m permanently inspired by time, this really fascinates me. Time is such a strange complex system that you really can’t change but only accept. Lately I’ve been quite aware of this. So when seeing time as the only aspect, which is in our influence every single second of our existence, you really get sensitive about it. I try to somehow implement this awareness, in my work, like for example in the Uniform of Great Hope collection”.

C o l l e c t i o n:

Uniform of Great Hope takes its outcome in the melancholic state between dystopia and utopia, and is a secluded journey in to an annihilated mans seek on finding hope.

The inspiration is a mixture of references to the late 30s cold flatlands of Ostrobothnia when the Finns was fighting the Russian superior in Talvisota, combined with elements from scientific studies in bacterial life. This has caused a chemical orientated approach to the collection identity, and especially to the development of the fabric composition.

The collections idiom and shape evolvement is found in the synthesis of representation and manipulation, and is created through anatomical grotesque figures, where details, lines and spaces have appeared, been analysed and transformed.

 

M a t e r i a l s:

The fabrics used for the collection are a mixture of externally found and internally made. The internals are made by hand from already acquired textiles, and are therefore put in a new context together with especially toiled fabrics which have been given new life through a cold dying treatment, latex washes and paint layering.
