Nick Knight and Alister Mackie 2011

Traditionally, the male undergarment has failed to evolve any further than the lacklustre Y-front or boxer short. However, in 2007, Alister Mackie and Nick Knight’s Boned project challenged this tradition with the use of corsets, lace, silk and other lavish textiles. Commissioned for Another Man magazine, the feminised underwear, often mistaken for women’s lingerie, is especially designed to fit a mans contours and silhouette. For the SHOWstudio 2010 Inside/Out exhibition the re-appropriated designs were displayed in true Mackie style. The sumptuous underpants were pinned in box frames, as you see here, like delicate artefacts from a historical epoch where masculinity transcended the boundaries of convention
