Breath

 ‹ 2009 ›

Parts of women and women-made clothing lie in chests, where people in the past used to keep textile fabrics and linens. A subtle mechanism gently floats the clothing, depicting its breathing. Just in the moment of unplugging from the electricity, everything suddenly freezes. Perishes.
The installation embodies a quiet blow. The moment of confrontation posing many questions. A work-made dress was found in the attic of an old house in Čičmany. Like many other things.. it layed there aside, forgotten, perhaps unnecessary. With its creators gone, the function, the breath, the souls of these clothings had gone too.. only the body remained.
