Why this artistic research project on overalls?
I have always been fascinated of the history of not only humans, but also the things humans are using, like houses, furnitures, food, drinks, and not least clothes.
In modern society there has been a tendency to hide the ageing of both humans and the things in human life, to make them look like new and clean, instead of showing the ageing of human bodies, the fading of clothes, the natural dissolving process of stuff.
In this project I will explore how clothes, especially overalls, are ageing and through the "breaking in" process become objects in need of mending, and how this can evolve into artistic objects, wearable art.
I also want to thank my overalls sister Thistle-Evelyn for overall support and participation in this lifelong project
