Poor Things. The Costumes

The Benaki Museum brings to Athens the exhibition: "Poor Things. The Costumes" from 12 June to 29 September 2024.

This exhibition gives the Benaki Museum’s public the opportunity to discover twelve of the original handmade costumes created by Academy Award and BAFTA winner costume designer Holly Waddington for Yorgos Lanthimos's film ‘Poor Things’ and worn by Emma Stone, Willem Dafoe, Mark Ruffalo, Ramy Youssef, Vicki Pepperdine, Kathryn Hunter and Jerrod Carmichael.

The inventiveness of the film’s costumes lies in the marvellous balance between the dress conventions of the period when the action takes place and contemporary features that the costume designer grafts onto her creations, in concert with the director Yorgos Lanthimos.

The exhibition was also shown at the Barbican Centre in London (2023).
