Chile’s installation is a rich experiment in hybridity: the fusing of spirituality, sustainability, heritage, art and fashion. Housed in an ‘Animita’ - a spontaneously erected roadside shrine - specially-commissioned designs by Chile’s emerging fashion talent are juxtaposed with work by visual artists in celebration of the country’s artisanal textile heritage. The result is a proud homage to the intrinsic characteristics of the Chilean textile industry that they are helping to revive - small scale production, an eco-sustainable ideology and the continuity of its ancestral origins.
