Ingrid Luche at Ghebaly Gallery


"Ghost Dresses" seem to be based-off Amerindian ritual Ghost Dances and Ghost shirts, which sounds a bit like cultural appropriation since - according to wikipedia - Ghost Dance rituals were intended to make the white colonialists leave. Which white spaces they find themselves now refashioned in. Maybe the French aren't so sensitive to such matters. Maybe this is a bonafide attempt to make the colonialists leave. Seems like the PR would have touched on that. Either way it seems like the point is that eventually everything will be able to be overlaid into everything else, you buy a cultural anything with everything, anything, on it, you have can have anything with a t-shirt on it. You can order it online. Everything will be put into everything else.
