Sculptural explorations with clothing

The archetypal ubiquity of the white button-up shirt is reconfigured as instrument of instigation into a subversive dialogue through which the representation of power structure, uniformity, homogeneity, xenophobia, nomadism, and territoriality are filtered.
Clothing can be seen as our most visible outer layer, indication of our social uniform, and utilitarian attire. The archetype associated with certain articles of clothing have come to embed themselves in the deep consciousness of our collective social fabric. The white buttoned dress shirt is but one example of a prevalent archetype which inevitably recalls a gender based polemic, charged with the socio-politic of an affluent, and masculine hegemony.
