‘The world is at a key moment of collaboration and collision, opinion, new thinking and raw individual experimentation that will challenge everything. Questioning is vital. Values need to be debated and established. The imagination further developed, relevant to our times. Each presentation, each articulation, to be a confluence of Science, History and Art, Philosophical and Cyber Worlds.
The expectation out there is restless and we are no longer beholden to boundaries.'
Zowie Broach is one of the founders of B O U D I CC A, established in 1997.Show more
B O U D I CC A continues to stand strong and determined as a house, producing a body of work and research that expresses the narrative of identity in fashion. A parallel exploration considers the tailored silhouette, using a multitude of new disciplines such as 3D printing, Processing, Coding, Film and chrono-photography, where the enquiry is more for a re-definition, deconstruction, examination and atomisation of fashion and identity.
B O U D I CC A had their first solo show in Tel Aviv in 2012, and were one of three chosen designers in Fashioning the Object, curated and defined by Zoe Ryan for The Arts institute of Chicago. Other projects or performances have been shown and commissioned by the Tel Aviv Museum, The Royal Opera House, Kensington Palace, Haunch of Venison Yard, F.I.T., Centraal Museum Amsterdam, Arnhem Biennale and Somerset House. Most recently, B O U D I CC A created a new glass work as part of Glasstress, an exhibition at the Venice Biennale of international artists and designers working in Murano glass, and also produced a solo exhibition on being awarded a Design Fellowship by The Stanley Picker Gallery.
