Celebrating 10 Years of Themelessness, video compilation
This DVD features a wide range of Bless’ videos from their archives
(1998–2006) for the first time, and documents a unique mode of cultural
production in 15 movies. Heralded as one of fashion’s most innovative
designers, the Paris and Berlin-based duo (Desiree Heiss and Ines Kaag)
refuses to capitalize on one milieu. Constantly investigating the boundaries
of style, Bless slides from fashion to beauty, interior decoration to
art exhibition, collaboration with other brands to stylized advertising.
Their production, which sits on the fine line between art object and design,
high function and high fashion, is always unique and marked by the recycling
and adaptation of unexpected items put to use in a totally new way.
Multizone NTSC, 90 minutes, 2006.
