C’est Ci N’est Pas Une Foto
Barrie Girls took its inspiration from a set of historical ‘Look Book’ photographs loaned from the archive of Barrie Knitwear. Garment by garment, two unknown women model the latest season of Barrie’s knitwear collection against a series of undefined backdrops within the factory and its grounds. By re-examining and expanding potential narratives for the photographs, Dyer, Redmond and Jardine combined the collection with new graphic poster and written works that offered a new context for the Barrie Girls at a point where visual art, graphic design, history and fiction become interwoven.
