The Collection

​Video Performance 

 

This film uses the large collection of clothes I have collected from previous relationships over the last five years. I was inspired to make this film while sorting through my clothes after filming “The Contents of my Closet".

 

The captions appearing on the screen are either meant to mimic a scientific classification (meaning to objectify the memory/experience) or act as a poetic element. The layers of clothes act as a physical representation of the baggage we hold(I hold) from past relationships. As I put more layers on,my image becomes distorted, disguised, and discomforted.
