An Enduring Relationship
The exhibition "An Enduring Relationship" focuses on the relationship with our clothes that can be prolonged through the act of repair.
The act of repair brings together traditional craft and thinking towards a more sustainable future.
The focus is on the life of a piece of garment. Where us humans can be seen as contributors through care and repair. Each adding a layer, a trace of a life together.. Not taking ownership, not being a user, but being on a journey together. Being in a relationship.
“For me, wear-and tear is symbolic of a personal individual path, with breakages (mended or raw) as a powerful visualization of our activities, memories of moments, the scars of our everyday, an integral part of our clothes`stories.”
