雲 | GLOOM

2016

wearable art. embossed fleece, soft stuffing, yarn, wire, PU coated fabric

Gloom embodies a more passive response towards assessing my cultural identity. Gloom presents the difficult process of introspection as a burden to the body. I created Gloom using a mixture of garment making methodologies, developed from my experience working for a fashion designer, and domestic crafting processes, such as making large untrimmed “pom-poms”. The material choice of fleece and yarn, and the craft aspect of the work connect to childhood, which I associate with safety and certainty. The work presents my desire to retreat from the feeling of displacement and reconnect to the past.

MATERIALS

The wearable sculpture has a potential to be adopted into the form of Performance Art.
