wearable object

– state of art, Zoe Pingel

I think that gender is constructed by everyone and therefore fluid in its appearance.

The overall impression should cause confusion and make everyone present question the traditional idea of wearing a textile object. My intention is to think about what a textile form can do, or what can be done with it as opposed to how it appears or what it is. The action shows my thoughts on identity and blurs out definitions. It aims to emphasize androgyny by visualizing transformation of medium and object. Personally I think that gender identity is also processed via certain gender-related expectations that are projected onto the subject (in this case the performance), who can either accept or reject these expectations. In the end it is not only the interaction between medium and object, but also the public’s perception playing a decisive role. The space allows the dialogue between performance and public.
