The world is not three-dimensional. In physics there's a fourth dimension - time - as postulated by Einstein in the theory of relativity and explored in the art of Marcel Duchamp and Franz Erhard Walther.
It's the latter that is the inspiration for "4D" by German fashion designer of Greek origins Kostas Murkudis. His SS 2014 collection presents the pieces of the series on various dimensions: flat on the floor so as to form geometric compositions, but also sculptural when unfolded and worn.
"I don’t believe in fixed forms although I love the idea of duration — to claim actions are works seems surprising to many people", declared Walther, whose work since the early 60s has mixed minimalist sculpture, conceptual art, abstract painting and performance.
Among others, Berlin-based designer and fashion consultant Murkudis has worked as creative director at Helmut Lang, Burlington and Closed. With this abstract collection he presents a series that plays with the pleating, folds, structure and surface of garments. A experiment in stratification, combination and potentially infinite mixing and matching.
