ALIVE:xperience costume design

3rd - 25th August 2013 

An Talla Solais is delighted to present - AliveE:xperience an exhibition of performance costume designs created by award winning label K’outure.  K’outure, created in the Highland village of Advie, is the creation of the three sisters Harriet, Matilda and Jemima Kirkwood, all graduates of Edinburgh College of Art’s Performance Costume Department.

The three sisters came together to form their own company, k’outure, to showcase their original clothing creations, a decision that has enabled them to have complete control over the designs they create.  The exhibition at An Talla Solais celebrates costume design as a medium in its own right and provides an insight into the preparation, workings, projects and background of the designers’ education at Edinburgh College of Art.

This exhibition features an extensive collection of costumes that have been designed, made, and in some cases, built!  ALIVE:xperience is a magical journey.

Featuring illustrations, portfolios, set boxes, installations and much more, ALIVE:xperience –An Exhibition explores the theory and concepts behind the Kirkwoods’ weird and wonderful costumes, K’outure are delighted to be able to celebrate their achievements at An Talla Solais, and hopefully inspire others to follow a career in the arts.
