Info

Territory Dress is concerned with claiming female territory, mapping the female body and colonial and social histories. The piece, commissioned by the Tropenmuseum in Amsterdam, references Dutch colonial history by displaying the much-coveted Dutch colonies that spanned the globe within its frills and folds (which are made of paper maps and printed map cloth). The train creates a kind of movement, as if passing through time, pulling the weight of a brutal past whilst the hollow of the stomach questions the origins of bodily and national proprietary.
