Super Sharp Reloaded

9 August – 6 September 2018

Address: Selfridges, 400 Oxford St, Marylebone, London W1A 1AB

Super Sharp Reloaded at Selfridges was the second iteration of the Fashion Space Gallery’s Super Sharp exhibition. It explored the appropriation of Italian designer brands in the underground music scenes of Jungle and UK Garage. Versace, Moschino, Iceberg and D&G are examples of labels that ruled the dance floor in the nineties. Moschino, in particular, became synonymous with the look associated with that era. This exhibition drew from an extensive archive amassed by DJ and producer Saul Milton, which also formed the core of the wider series of exhibitions RTRN II JUNGLE.

During this exhibition there was a revival of interest in the music, style and culture of that time. Even though Jungle and UK Garage took place before the emergence of the Internet, their history is extensively documented online. However, the overlap between their style and the various times there was a revived interest in the music, has meant that a blurry nostalgic image of the time has emerged.

 

Super Sharp Reloaded and the wider series RTRN II JUNGLE  are curated by Tory Turkit was jointly conceived with Saul Milton and commissioned by Ligaya Salazar.
