Paper dress

Dressed in a paper dress, folded, ruched and covered with diner’s scribbles, an artist layered large sheets of paper on the dining tables, for diners to participate in an organic installation – a place to eat, meet and mingle during the May Arts Festival in Brussels. The installation created by the stylist and costume designer, Valentine Kempynck, offered a dining hall with "healthy" meals, a bar, long tables covered with the paper and over sized pencils hanging conveniently from the ceiling. Once the paper is covered with drawings and thoughts, they are moved for viewing to the adjoining gallery where they may be draped over tables, hung from the ceiling or projected on screens.
