Dress for Venus

Agency Network: 
March 2017

Part of Collection


The theme for Art Fair Tokyo this year is “Art is Alive -We approach art, art approaches us”. To bring people closer to classical arts, we decided to conduct a live performance using William Bouguereau’s masterpiece, “The Birth of Venus” . The concept is “Dress the Venus, who has been naked for 100years” This is an unprecedented art project, where the Venus, who has been naked for 100 years, will be dressed in a handmade dress, designed by Junko Koshino; a representative fashion designer of Japan. After the Venus is converted into a 3D model, the newly designed dress will be drawn on her in VR environment. AI was trained to replicate the style and touch of Bouguereau, and at the end, the dress was synthesised onto the original painting. This is an entirely new Live drawing performance, merging art, fashion and technology.
