RESERVED VIENNA 2011 is a cooperation between fashion photographer Manuela
Larissegger, fashion designer Nina Markart and artist Josef Wurm. They deal with the topic of fashion
bodies in a multimedia and genre-crossing manner by narrating stories in which human model bodies are stylized as inanimate
mannequins in a shop window and thus become their own substitutes.
The glass surface of the shop
window is transformed into a stage by Josef Wum: in a live act, he combines papercutting techniques with tape art
and thus creates various sceneries made of adhesive film that step by step reveal the view onto the interior and the mannequin.
During her interactions with the cut out setting, the model wears outfits by Nina Markart and
is photographed by Manuela Larissegger. The photographs are exhibited right after the performance. In this way, not
only the artistic work process but also the smooth transitions between the genres of fashion, photography and street art become
visible after a week.
