Colin Corbett, Strapped,2009
Sensing an unanswered demand in the jock strap market, artist Colin Corbett created a line of protective underwear unlikely to perform well with pants. Inspired by his own stock phrase, ‘oh, he’s got his diamante jockstrap on inside out.’ the artist decided to create a more comfortable, yet still almost completely unwearable design. Silence has been returned by the Ready-To-Wear fashion community.
His exhibition Strapped, which was on view at the new exhibition at London College of Communication (LCC), makes no mention of performance, though I would think this medium natural to explore. At the very least, a work in this vein would re-enforce the current move away from getting completely naked while in a gallery. Via: lcc arts and ss.
