Sinéad O’Dwyer

Sinéad O’Dwyer’s graduation project is based on the idea of wearing a body on a body, as an analogy of how we wear garments cut to fit a body that is not our own. “I developed this idea by life-casting friends to create molds of their bodies that I then used to make silicone shells. I then pushed this technique much further to encapsulate compressed silk lingerie within the silicone, resulting in rippling, sinuous prints embedded beneath the skin, giving voice to the idea of the body shaping the garment as opposed to the garment shaping the body.” The use of lingerie reflects her continued obsession with the intimacy and delicacy of the human form, reflected in soft fabrics and finishings. The title 23:19:26 refers to the sizes of her muse’s body.
