Prada selects Joanna Piotrowska for Spring/Summer 2021 show

17 July 2020

Joanna Piotrowska, commissioned for the Jerwood/Photoworks Awards 2015, is one of five artists to make 'chapters' for Prada's Spring/Summer Collection 2021.

With fashion shows taking place around the world digitally rather that physically this summer, Prada commissioned Joanna along with artists Terence Nance, Martine Syms, Juergen Teller and Willy Vanderperre to each create a filmed or photographic chapter for their new collection.

Joanna Piotrowska on creating Chapter 3 of #PradaMultipleViews, the show that never happened:

“Gesture and physicality are an essential non-verbal form of communication and play a big role in the conceptual and compositional aspects of my work. The finger snap is a quick and subtle, yet attention-demanding action. It is also used to indicate approval or to maintain rhythm. I thought that this short could be an interesting space to work with the snap as a recurring motif that marks the movements and refocuses the viewer’s attention to each new look.”
