Sanzi Kermes: "Brides Revisited" at Creative York

“Brides Revisited” is an installation and exhibition by Baltimore artist Sanzi Kermes in The Project Space at Creative York.

Sanzi Kermes: Brides Revisited
Exhibit dates: October 4 – November 17, 2018
Opening Reception: Thursday, October 4 • 6-8 pm

“Brides Revisited” is an installation and exhibition of refashioned and reclaimed wedding dresses from various eras of style. The title of the exhibition is a veiled reference to Evelyn Waugh’s book of similar title, Brideshead Revisited. Waugh’s story has been studied and parsed since its publication in 1945. One motif debated is whether the central figure is a gay man. Sanzi is broadly referencing gay pride in this installation by printing in series like the rainbow flag that has become synonymous with gay pride outreach. Each wedding dress and formal wear item chosen and installed will be in series (red, orange, yellow, green, blue, purple). The titles will be names of the main characters in the novel. Included in this are a theatre costume reminiscent of late 1890s wear, a 1960 wedding gown of simple elegance and fabric, and some more modern dresses that have been reinterpreted and printed with Sanzi’s signature Scrabble patterns.
