    The most extreme form of corsetry happened in the last two decades of the 19th century when the waist was constrained to the point of ill health. Corsets still signify intrigue. They have a sexual connotation since they are women’s undergarments. While at the same time, they render the form impervious to touch. Even in our more androgynous times, the corset creates a uniquely feminine shape. And when worn by men, they are not used to improve the form but rather to make a statement. This exhibition shows the corset meant to enhance or intrigue the viewer either on or off of a body as a work of art in itself.
