70 cotton smocks

The performance “70 Cotton Smocks” (2008-2011) took a while to get presented. The project deals with the absorption of values and information noise like mass media, politics, etc. from the surrounding environment that one can either accept or resist. The smock, ordinarily the simplest uniform for medical workers, labs, and couturier ateliers, here signifies certain values and mind patterns one’s subconscious unconsciously absorbs from the environment and takes on in one’s life, slowly losing one’s true self and inner identity.
