Shem-Etzem

The collection deals with my relationship with the garments and jewelry I own, and in a broader sense, with the nature of the relationship between an individual and his material surrounding throughout his life. The question that intrigued me the most involved the "day after": will our objects go on telling our story after our passing? As part of the research I staged photographs of self-burial along with my belongings, scattered on and around my body.

The collection is inspired by burial rituals in different traditions and cultures. The garments are made of various textiles that underwent hand processing and feature prints of images that depict me and my objects. The patterns are wide, wrap around the body and blur its original outlines, while the volumes build a new delineation that traces the objects that we carry on our bodies.

Materials: sponge, leather, aluminum, Perspex, Tyvek, canvas, plastic, nylon tulle, cotton, wool.

Techniques: sublimation print, hand dyeing, embroidery, sewing, industrial knitting, weaving.
