Dumping its usual couture exhibits, Antwerp’s fashion museum, MOMU will take a look behind the scenes of the fashion world.
From November to early February MOMU will showcase photos by Thomas Zanon-Larcher which look take a fresh look at models, un-posed and free.Moving quietly and unobtrusively backstage in Paris, Milan and New York, he photographs models at rest, work and play; capturing another side to the coveted world.The work, Jerwood: Free and Framed, staged by director Jules Wright form an installment of 30 as part of The Wrapping Project.When posing the model for the shots, the director says he imagined the work as a sequel to Henrik Ibsen’s play The Doll House in 1890… with Nora slamming the door and leaving her world behind. 

The exhibition originally showed in London from October 2006 to February 2007 before it traveled to the Antwerp fashion museum.


Jerwood: Free and Frames will show until February 3 2008 at MOMU in Antwerp. The exhibition is open Tuesdays through Sundays from 10am till 6pm and till 9pm on the first Thursday of each month. The fashion museum is located on 28 Nationalestraat.
