The Burden I Am Wearing, 2023

This series is my confession. On each image I’m wearing all the clothes that I own from one category: all my dresses, night wear, underwear pieces... The researchers found that a “sufficient” wardrobe consists of 74 garments. With my clothes I am way above this, even though I buy less and second hand, choose quality over fast fashion, upcycle and mend. Still, every day I can feel the mental weight of my clothes. It comes from an awareness that I am part of the global problem of the unsustainable fashion nightmare.
