Ocupação Ray Ban
Assembled in a historic building in the region of Sé, downtown São Paulo, the Ray-Ban Occupation Project brought together 21 interactive exhibits spread throughout the four floors of the building. The brand invited more than 30 artists to explore stories of belonging through their original works.
Anne was responsible for the Every Storm Passes (Toda Tempestade Passa) exhibit, a colorful and sensorial place where people could interact with many different textures and elements inviting them to have fun and play.
The technique is ancient, but the dimension that Anne Galante uses in her performance is new and refocuses attention on the importance of these handicrafts to the world.
Using big needles and thread, she weaves a huge futon for people to lie down on and remember their dreams. Anne Galante's mission is to preserve these techniques and recover the health benefits of creating a handmade product, promote wellness and reflect on conscious consumption and production. Fashion is not just for the fashion world; everyone wears clothes, and often people have no idea how cruel the production process can be.
In these hectic times where everything is "fast", she proposes an alternative to this frenetic pace by offering a deliberate “slowness”. While she knits, the audience interacts by watching a slow movement that stitch by stitch forms a giant work of art. Just like in our dreams, if we take the first steps, it will slowly become reality.
