Mapping a wardrobe, 2003
These entail a series of five booklets, in which twenty pieces of basic garment are being perceived from various different perspectives. The garment will thus get a different signification.
Drawings where in the apertures of the clothing are to be viewed from the front.
A garment is by itself situated in a specific location on the surface of the body, where it will overlap with other pieces of clothing. Here the garment is schematically displayed several times, with overlappings of the different pieces of clothing.
The seams of a garment are respectively being drawn from a frontal view, from the left and rightside and from the back. By realigning the seams horizontally and vertically in a straight line, a diamond square is being formed. By connecting these to one another and applying a form of repetiiton, a chequered pattern evolves. Each piece of garment will have its own check, based on its seams.
The labels of pieces of garment are photographed on those spots where they are usually placed on the garment and where they touch the body.
