About this piece:
As Peter Stallybrass writes in his article Worn Worlds, clothing “receives us: receives our smells, our sweat, our shape even […] holding our gestures.” In this book I contemplate the tattered clothing I have held onto over time, its functionality long gone and consider the way clothing retains memory but also a ghostlike presence.
The book is offset lithography, printed in the Borowsky Center for Publication Arts at the University of the Arts, Philadelphia, PA (2014).
