Atelier EB: Passer-by

Lucy McKenzie & Beca Lipscombe

ISBN: 9783960987529 (WIRE-O - E/ F)

Atelier E.B: Passer-by examines an essential facet of the fashion industry: the world of mannequins and retail display. Since the Surrealists took them up in the early twentieth century, mannequin have been an enduring motif within fine art. Lipscombe and McKenzie un-pack the disciplines of window dressing, look to radical thinkers and makers who dissolved the dividing line between fine art and commercial display, and piece together a compelling narrative that encompasses ethnography, statuary, dolls, the world fairs and our digital future. This catalogue, like the traveling exhibition, is a meticulous and idiosyncratic study of the hierarchies which have historically separated the spheres of art and design, examining the border between com-mercial display and exhibition-making.

Atelier E.B are Beca Lipscombe, born Edinburgh 1973, lives and works in Edinburgh and Lucy McKenzie, born Glasgow 1977, lives and works in Brussels.
