Multiple and performance about surface and body

Generally, an expanse of cloth is cut up into individual pieces and made into an item of clothing by means of seams, which in their turn define the room for movement available to the body. I have reduced the work on the fabric to basic geometric forms and cuts, in and through which the body is able to move. The dimensions of the pieces of fabric emerge from the cloth widths generally available on the market.

The result is a do-it-yourself box which contains all the components necessary to realise this principle. As a performance for 2 surfaces and 2 dancers, the work was shown in 2002 as part of my interdisciplinary diploma in sculpture and fashion at the Kunsthochschule Berlin-Weissensee.
