More than 25.000 visitors, a record for the Hasselt Fashion Museum, visited the exhibition “Axelle Red: Fashion Victim”. Axelle Red is a Belgian singer, writer and composer celebrating her 20 years career in the French Pop music stardom. The Hasselt Fashion Museum gave her “carte blanche” for a large exhibition presenting mainly her huge wardrobe. In addition to her wardrobe, photography and visual language as a whole also form a visual memory for Axelle’s career. She carefully selected the talented photographers, artists and collaborators whom she admires to illustrate and help present her work.
“Axelle Red: Fashion Victim” tells the very personal story of this passionate relationship. Her favorite artists were represented at this exhibition; Sam Dillemans, Marlene Dumas and Evelyne Axell. For Axelle Red, Evelyne Axell is “like a sister from the past, sharing the same passions and the same kind of feminism”. Works presented were “Valentine”, “Autostop”, “La belle indécise” and “Le peintre en extase”.
