Curated lets us know about this:
“On July 15, 2011 LeBasse Projects will unveil the first major solo exhibition from Australian artist Melissa Haslam. Haslam, who has shown in group shows throughout the United States, will share paintings exploring her fascination with the Kigurumi seen. Participants in Kigurumi fashion themselves as living stuffed animals, wearing what they call “disguised pajamas.” Haslam, employing oil, presents young women dressed in full costume with great delicacy and an intimacy that proves her interest in the subculture includes some reverence as well.”
