Two deframestrations on Open'er Festival
LASEM has been invited to Open'er Festival - we've performed on Fashion Stage, where we presented two performances - one for opening and one for closing of the event. On the first one we have cut three paintings - works of Katarzyna Krzysztofik, Anna Niwa and Filip Rybkowski. Paintings that had been exhibited on the second performance were formed during the Festival and the painters were Karolina Nikolaidis, Łukasz Roth and Szymon Szelc. There was also one common painting, painted by artist of LASEM group and festival goers.
LASEM occured on Idea Fix Fest - culture and the fashion event held periodically on Cracow's Kazimierz district. We cut four paintings out of their frames. They are works of Anna Niwa, Szymon Szelc, Radosław Szlęzak and one common painting, made by LASEM group and festival goers.

LASEM joins fashion and painting in one innovative formula - clothes that are cut out of paintings. Artists who are invited by LASEM, create paintings, that are then exhibited on an art exhibitions, during which the paintings are cut out from the frames and turned into clothes in front of the public. Exactly those quasi-exhibitions create a touch point between pure art and applied art, between painting and fashion, between a piece of art and a product. Thanks to this property, clothes cut out of paintings retain the uniqueness and the element of cult, that the painting is gifted with, whilst being the fully functional piece of clothing all the time.
