Chloé Voices gives Carte Blanche to Rita Ackermann
The artist whose works feature throughout the FW20 collection created an exclusive video for us
Discover a silent film that invites us to listen carefully. Shot by Bernadette Van Huy, “On the phone with Chloé” features artist Rita Ackermann, her daughter Marika Thunder (@Miss_Thunder), and Tyneika Horne (@CrownFlawless) alternating through still and moving imagery for several minutes in silence. As the three women hold vintage rotary phones to their ears, they are, in effect, acting out part of the #CHLOEfw20 runway message, “If You Listen Carefully…,” a reference to one of Rita’s works from the ’90s. Accentuated with expressive makeup by Marika, they appear throughout Rita’s studio dressed in Chloé clothes printed with reproductions of her figurative yet abstract paintings. Such continuous rippling and reverberation throughout the film signals a dissonance between visual and sound like an alluring disturbance on the surface of water.
