Info

Territory Dress is concerned with claiming female territory, mapping the female body and colonial and social histories. Commissioned by the Tropenmuseum it specifically refers to Dutch colonial history, the frills and folds of maps and printed cloth coveting colonies that span the globe. 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.
