Rachel Comey collaborated this season with legendary female artist Joan Jonas on a fashion collection that embodies her lifetime of art and creativity. This month, the most comprehensive retrospective of Jonas' career, spanning 1968 to present, opened at the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

The Eunoia Dress features still imagery from Joan Jonas' 1979 video and art production titled Upsidedown and Backwards. The electric colors added by Comey and the new shapes the images will take while worn reanimate the stills to their original time-based form. With film transferred to clothing, the wearer enters this dimensional, yet intimate space on their own terms and momentum returns to the images.  

"In Upsidedown and Backwards, two fairy tales — The Frog Prince and The Boy Who Went Out to Learn Fear — are told simultaneously, one backwards and one forwards, each interrupting the other. Jonas' ironic use of visual symbolism further inverts the structure and content of the fragmented fairy tale narratives, creating multiple, mirror-image reversals of the texts and their meaning. The inverted and mixed-up tales, which are intercut with Jonas' ritualistic performances, merge into a composition of transformation and sexuality that evokes the tangled subconscious of male and female desire. Jonas performs wearing a veiled doll face as she manipulates childlike objects or partners a skeleton in a danse macabre. Charged with the sublimated fears and fantasies of childhood, the tape's imagery mirrors the fairy tales in its fusion of innocence and horror, dream and nightmare." - EAl.ORG
