How Lisu Vega’s “El Cuerpo de la Obra” Will Make You Feel About Fashion
When was the last time a piece of clothing made you feel something? If you’ve never shopped for a wedding dress or squeezed into ill-fitting pants, it’s possible you’ve never thought of dressing yourself as an emotional act. But for fashion artist Lisu Vega, textiles are a medium for catharsis.
“I use the body as a canvas to express my emotions,” the Laundromat Art Space resident says. “For me, fashion is information. And I use the body to make information in the city. It’s not only fashion; it’s art statement pieces in the street. Fashion must always relate to art.”
