Becoming - 2008

Becoming

SPRING . SUMMER 2009

The negative /positive processes of moulding and casting, with their reversing internal and external surfaces, convexities and concavities led to ideas of intimate cutting and folding together of the bodies (body-moulds/clothes). The return to the body as a subject of feeling, nucleus of perception and sensation as well as memory and experience.

Becoming 

Clothing constrains the body, distorts it , orientates its perception, imprints sensations, interacts with individuals not only through image but also through movement building a dialogue between wearer and garment : subject and object - negative and positive.
