Poetry. Lily Ladewig's THE SILHOUETTES explores autonomy, bodies, femininity, romance and vulnerability with humor and an acute sensitivity to a world constructed by image and text. In the world of THE SILHOUETTES, Ladewig questions the value of high fashion and culture while simultaneously indulging in it: French vacations, Perrier, and periwigs, are met equally with anxiety and desire. It invites you to be fancy, flirtatious, and fragmented.
