pelican avenue – Fine Knit Body Suit

pelican avenue / Carolin Lerch is highly fascinating in the way she chooses and treats materials and how she develops techniques. Highly refined, but also very personal, cross genre and discipline, she processes and fabricates highly sensual objects, what you could call a feminine way to visualize their subject matter.

The knitted underwear of pelicanavenue shows the body as a sovereign but vulne­rable object. Intimacy is given a tangible form, referring to a physical and mental state, not the symbolic representation it often must manifest. The knitware is con­crete, tactile and sensual. Colors and shapes compel the body to its own eroticism. The body might become a comfort zone, allowing for intimate scenes and possible conflict.

The price of the bodysuits are € 280,- each incl VAT


In dialogue with a selected group of female artists (Krõõt Juurak, Priska Morger, Lucy McKenzie, Narelle Dore, Ronja Stahl) pelicanavenue will create a photo-projec. Having received a pelicanavenue body, Reef_Reverse and Shark_Reverse, the women will collaborate with pelicanavenue, these women are wearing the suits.
