The main idea is based on the exposure of the garment object as an artifact. There are many interesting animal exhibits in museums demonstrating rare and peculiar features created by nature. I worked with hand-knitted structures that I composed into collages. The second skin is made of large coat or dress covered with hand-made „animal fur“. Their organic shapes and distinct silhouettes deform the natural body and create an ODDITY. Wearing the coat makes you part of the freak exhibition reminiscent of the world of wild fauna. The colours and details only add to the feeling of bizarre.
