Fashion Awareness Installations : Offline production
Charlotte Maëva Perret Connects Online and Offline Production
The work is aptly named ‘Open Sesame: Exercises in Entrepreneurship’ which cleverly hints at the popular Syrian folk tale of Ali Baba and the Forty Thieves. Charlotte Maëva Perret brings attention to offline production and “invisible geographies that participate in late capitalism choreographies.”
The installation consists of two symbols — towers of soaps and counterfeit leather bags with Alibaba.com branding printed on them. The former product is “made for survival” by “smart business people who have been forced to leave their home country,” while the later signifies big companies that search to connect individuals to factories and the challenges that come with that.
