Designmuseo To Feature Control Costumes In Upcoming Exhibition, INTIMACY

If you're in Helsinki between October to March, make sure to pop by the Designmuseo (Helsinki Design Museum). 

In their upcoming exhibition, INTIMACY, the organisation explores Finnish clothing and accessories made by prominent and local designers. A full list of participants has gone live, with the show due to feature work created for Control by costume designer, Heli Salomaa. The list of props and costumes from the game isn't yet public, although more details will likely be announced closer to the time. 

INTIMACY will run at the Designmuseo between 8th October 2021 to 13th March 2022. For details from ticket prices to how to get there, visit the official website, HERE.


Official Event Description:
The exhibition situates at the intersection of novel politicization and digital disruption of fashion. It updates our understanding of Finnish clothing and accessory design into the 2020s, exploring the intimate relationship between the body and the clothes we wear and introducing visitors to the creative design process, from initial sketches to the finished products. The exhibition also highlights the impact of digitalization and datafication on the work of the designer as well as the mechanisms through which fashion is manufactured, distributed and consumed. The exhibition is based on extensive research on the work of the most prominent Finnish fashion designers of the 2020s and beyond, as well as that of the more anonymous designers behind contemporary work uniforms and wearable technology.

The exhibition is curated by Professor Annamari Vänskä and researchers from her research group, post-doctoral researcher Jenni Hokka and PhD-researcher Natalia Särmäkari from Aalto University. Intimacy is part of the research consortium Intimacy in Data-driven Culture (IDA), funded by the Strategic Research Council at the Academy of Finland. The research project explores, among other things, how intimacy functions as the driving force of creative economy, including fashion. The exhibition is also part Year of Research-Based Knowledge 2021, the theme year of Academy of Finland.
