Tilda Swinton to Star in Fashion Performance
SELF-PRESERVATION: British-born, Paris-based photographer and artist Katerina Jebb has produced a short movie made during rehearsals for Musée Galliera director Olivier Saillard’s latest fashion performance, “The Impossible Wardrobe,” featuring Tilda Swinton. The live happening will take place on each evening of the contemporary arts festival called Festival d’Automne à Paris (or Paris Fall Festival, in English), which is scheduled to take place at the Palais de Tokyo from Sept. 29 to Oct. 1. Jebb’s film is due to be screened, on a loop, throughout the event. 
In the work, titled “The Future Will Last a Very Long Time,” Swinton, dressed in a white lab coat accessorized with white gloves and high heels, can be seen moving about the Musée Galliera’s clinical storerooms holding historic archive garments, including a coat by Madeleine Vionnet that once belonged to American writer Natalie Clifford Barney. Ghostly faces of past wearers of certain pieces, such as Napoléon Bonaparte and Sarah Bernhardt, are to be seen projected onto Swinton’s body, as well as the screen behind her.
