A fabulous book documenting 25 years of Canada’s wearable art, performance and drag festival “Wiggle”!
(Currently only available in English)
Beginning in the early 90’s as a fundraiser in Windsor, Ontario, the House Of Venus crew eventually relocated to Vancouver in 1996, creating glamorous chaos every year uniting many of the cities’ brightest creative lights together in the spirit of imagination and the form of a wig! Making something magnificent from recycled objects or earth bound things not normally incorporated into headgear, fabulously made and created out of seemingly nothing, equals the glam-alchemy of Wiggle. Rapturous audiences who turn out every year are often walking pieces of art themselves, giving everyone a chance to feel part of the show. Artists, designers and stylists are encouraged to contribute creations in the fashion element by submitting cutting-edge wig and ensemble pieces.
