Minou Lejeune, born in Maastricht, the Netherlands, is graduated as a Jewellery designer at MAFAD: Maastricht Academy of Fine Arts and Design. She sees herself as a jewellery designer and prop maker.

In her work, she takes the normal out of its context, twists and play with it, to see where it ends up. She wishes to explore the limits within the relationship between fashion, wearable objects and performance. Her body related objects are made to be part of something bigger. It’s her aim to collaborate with all kinds of ‘story tellers’; art directors, photographers, fashion designers, and so on.

The Clash Project investigates what work for the body could be. It centers on the participants response to make an outfit that is wearable on the catwalk. Again, the 6th edition of the Clash Project is a collection not just made by one person, but by 10 that are referring on their existing, everyday work with the body as a platform.

The invited participants are designer Ola Mirecka who played with Lego colors as she currently designs for them, artist Raoul Zöllner together with Viola from the blog Pinar Viola experiments with white socks, recently graduated jewelry maker Minou Lejeune that acts more like a stylist in her work and Shana Teugels made an outfit that shapes her kitch materials into a mermaid dress. Sanne Vaasen developed a previous work into a human worn cocoon, as jewelry design Gabriel Guevera pushed a detail of a existing brooch into an illuminated art work and Benten Clay’s human excess come in form of a bear mask. Shaping material in form brought the girls from Ioia together which is reflected in the light blue foam suit, Dennis Vanderbroek gets fringy and shows flesh, acting it out in his performance and Marie Claire Krell brings it all down to a strong translation of her sculptural artwork involving scenario with a pinball gun.

Again, in its 6th year, it gives an experimental context. The results are unexpected bodysuits and abstract visions of its maker that are different in colour, shape and material. None of the 10 outfits for this editions look alike. There is no trend factor. The opportunity creates a vast range of possible links between the disciplines. The select of participants scrambles linear approaches to produce unexpected constellations, revealing powerful connections between the participants profession and contribution.

將看似平常的事物帶入某種不同尋常的情景充滿了挑戰性和趣味性,而在荷蘭設計師 Minou Lejeune的作品中處處可以尋覓這種讓人出奇不易的光點。看似日常生活中的道具被最大程度的玩味和扭曲,成就了現在這個剛畢業於聖馬丁藝術學院新星的第一個成衣及珠寶系列 XYXX。「這是個關乎性別的系列,在2014年,一個全新的性別誕生了,『無性別人』,在受到了不同性別及其特徵的啟發,我創造了這個雌雄共體的身體配件系列,在這個系列中男女性徵將第一次得以共存。」該系列同時受到了「共性人」Mykki Blano 的啟發和感染,「他那種由男性身體演繹出的極致柔美感從某種程度上已經超越了物理戒律和傳統美學。」設計師如是說。大膽遊戲,於性別之美,行走於明暗之間,時尚的意義存在於時尚之外。
