WHOSE IDENTITY ARE YOU WEARING?
– Textile artwork collection
Themes on my bachelor work Whose identity are you wearing? are consumption, clothes and identity. It is a textile art installation which is based on my year 2019 shopping diary. My wish is to communicate about consumption and tendency to create identity with our choice of clothing. The questions I ask are: What kind of values guide our clothing choices? And in what way are we creating and strengthening our self-image through the clothes we wear? The images on my work are clothes which represent different values that I used for shaping my own personality.
The work is made from mostly woollen fabrics with details in linen, silk and recycled jeans. Technique used is textile intarsia. The whole work is handstitched.
The whole artwork consist four pieces and takes wall space approx. 190 cm * 160 cm.
