Alet Pilon I

Alet Pilon's coats (2002) are terrifying half beast half man forms, insect like, threatening, surreal and amazing.
"My work is about people. My objects are about animals. My images are about power. Actually, everything about impotence. "
Alet Pilon was the head of the fashion department of the Rietveld Academy. "Feel the freedom and go look where you need it in terms of technology," was her motto. She taught her students also associative thinking: "Do not stop at one idea, but go on with it." That resulted in an individual way of teaching. On leaving she gave visiting lectures l at colleges around the world, but mainly she at last gave herself the freedom to apply herself to her own work
