K-Gold Temporary Gallery presents the exhibition “Always wear your best,” with the participation of seven Greek and international artists. After six years of nomadic activity, this show marks new directions in the artistic and research programming of the Gallery in a permanent space in Agia Paraskevi, Lesvos.

The exhibition includes photography, video, and installation that explores the boundaries between the worlds of art and fashion. Clothing, as a powerful tool of expression, can transform to become a symbol of desire and empowerment. In this show, the adornment of the human body is examined as a daily routine, a ritual, and a personal and collective need which, over time, demonstrates the urge to consume through materials and emotions.

Issues of identity and pride are situated at the heart of this photographic research. Alice Mann examines the relationship between traditional dress and worship in the African diaspora, while Shalva Nikvashvili’s eccentric masks are posted on social media, subverting social expectations. Jacopo Benassi, known for his underground aesthetics, is photographed in high fashion clothes by Vivienne Westwood and Claude Montana in an exploration of the extremes of classical and contemporary physicality. Johanne Stoffersen’s travel imagery focuses on desire and pleasure.

The exhibition also includes the film “BATON” by Spanish director Albert Moya, a collaboration with writer Efthymis Filippou and the iconic designer Dries van Noten, which investigates power and obsession in today’s society. Finally, a series of sculptures and functional objects by the duo Hypercomf (Ioannis Koliopoulos and Paola Palavidi) humorously explore the notions of useful and useless, comfort and discomfort.

The exhibition “Always wear your best” is accompanied by a series of parallel events: screenings, guided tours, and an educational program. The events are free and open to all.
