Each of the stages is an ode to the power of the infinite, to countless changes within us. They are a very personal expression of my fascination for dance, nature, and surrealism. – Iris van Herpen
Taking her inspiration for the work called “Biomorphism” from living organisms and patterns found in nature, Iris forms the hypnotic installations that are her very personal ode to the performance of femininity.
In my search for transformation and change, my classical ballet training was one of the most influential things in my life. During those years, I learned so much about the hypnotic, graceful transformations of each and every movement. Sometimes a garment is perfectly in tune with the body and the two dance together. Sometimes it is exactly the opposite, and the garment determines how the body moves. It is this disruption, this intuition that I wanted to focus on in this installation. – Iris van Herpen.
