How to Dress for Society

One aspect of the tragedy of human existence is the suffocating feeling of isolation. We barricade ourselves behind elaborate defense mechanisms, which operate on physical as well as on psychological levels. Clothing is one way to wear a mask. We dress to hide our vulnerable bodies and souls, to fit into a social system and hide our insecurities. Through my wearable sculptures I question and redefine the role of the garment. Wrapping the body to reveal instead of conceal. The wearer’s emotional landscape gets exposed and invites to an honest and open dialogue between the wearer and the viewer.
