Atelier E.B (Atelier Edinburgh-Brussels) is the name with which designer Beca Lipscombe and artist Lucy McKenzie sign their collaborative projects. Formed in 2007, Atelier E.B is a fashion label that produces using local and exploitation-free manufacturing. It operates through networks outside the system of fashion, reinventing conventional modes of display and distribution. This often involves gallery presentations, which combine art, design, and cultural research.

The exhibition Atelier E.B: Passer-by is based on a two-year research project focused on issues around display and the people behind the rich and sometimes undervalued history of the twentieth-century world expos and fairs, iconic department stores, ethnographic museums and fashion in the former Socialist Bloc.

The name of the project reflects Lipscombe and McKenzie’s belief that consuming fashion is not just the individual purchase of garments but also the passer-by’s glances at shop window displays and the enjoyment of fashion through books, magazines, exhibitions, and the Internet. For Atelier E.B, the nexus of the overlap between art, design, commerce, and display is centered upon the figure of the mannequin and fashion display; as modes of artistic expression and reflectors of cultural change. The exhibition has a broad chronology: the duo’s historical research traces multiple narratives within art, design, and, retail, while commissions by contemporary artists focus on  the contemporary image of the mannequin. The project also features a bespoke display for Atelier E.B’s fashion designs, including their most recent collection Jasperwear. vishopmag-escaparatismo-escaparates-revista-magazine-atelier-e-b-passer-by-1 vishopmag-escaparatismo-escaparates-revista-magazine-atelier-e-b-passer-by-2  vishopmag-escaparatismo-escaparates-revista-magazine-atelier-e-b-passer-by-4Photos: Garage Museum of Contemporary Art, Moscow, 2020/ Photography Ivan Erofeev.
