K.OSS Contemporary Art is pleased to present a collection of work by Detroit fiber artist Annica Cuppetelli.

The exhibit, «Measures of Constriction,» reveals a long-running theme in Cuppetelli’s work — the intervention of fashion on the female body.
Interested in how fashion is tailored to constrict the female figure and ultimately, to transform it, the artist borrows techniques and materials from garment-making to create forms that evoke fashion but function instead as sculpture and space. They are at once ethereal and sculptural, imperfect yet refined. The use of boning as a material recalls the corset, while weaving and basketry reference traditional techniques associated with female labor. Instead of adhering to the conventions of wrapping and concealing typical of fashion design, Cuppetelli uses form, technique and materials to confront deeper questions about the female body and identity.

We hope you will join us for the opening reception on Friday, January 11th with an artist reception from 6 to 9 PM.

The exhibition will be on view from January 11th through March 2nd, 2019.

We look forward to seeing you soon!
