Carol Christian Poell spring / summer 2004
Mainstream - Downstream
The installation “Mainstream Downstream” started with the performance that Carol Christian Poell did at Milan. People who let the Naviglio River take them will have the newest collection dressed on them. These people would not move at all, just like dead bodies but going with the flow. Carol Christian Poel wanted to emphisize what kind of world we live in nowadays, where people go with the flow, just like the river, and how dangerous it is. Products such as piece-died shoes were presented for the first time this season. In Life ecru, the video of the performance was played on the wall with enlarged images on them. The video and the image synchronized to create the atmosphere. Also, the clock that was used in the public of Europe over 100 years ago, defines “timeless” in the space. All great works easily rules out the limit of “time” and the work of Carol Christian Poell was presented and respected at the created space.
