The 00's are trendy now
Sara Sjölin

In the performance fresco The 00 ́s are Trendy Now, Sara Sjölin comments on a fashion show by Martin Margiela from 2000/01. The runway is set in an old basement-like environment with models wearing large, moth-eaten clothing and outgrown hair. When reading the signs of the fashion in this legendary avant-garde runway show, Sjölin draws parallels to the kidnapping-scare that was present when she grew up in the 90’s and early 00’s. Suddenly an adolescent-like shadow appears doing an illustrative dance to the speech.
