How we dress is one of our most fundamental modes of expression. Anna Telcs’ work combines historical and technical research, sculpture, sewing and dying techniques, filmography and performance to create objects that quietly and powerfully question our relationship with clothing and the cultural elements it comprises.
The Dowsing, Telcs’ annual project, is an aesthetic calling card. Its attention to form and detail instills a respect for the personal universe we each contain and express through the architecture of clothing. Her practice addresses and dissolves many issues that arise from the commercial fashion industry.
Her work has been shown in national museums and international festivals including the Guggenheim Museum’s Works and Process performances with Robert Wilson, The Museum of Contemporary Craft in Portland, OR and The Henry Art Museum in Seattle, WA. Anna Telcs’ work spans clients as varied as Thom Browne and Microsoft.
