We all have an intimate relationship when we are wearing our garment, they are on our skin. We are more ephemeral than the clothes in a way. I really love the idea of garment surviving us, we saw a huge collection of garment that use to be worn by Bunny Mellon. I have been really inspired by the gesture with the archive pieces.
What is happening when the body is not there anymore? Passage is the story of traces of the body, relationship with garment, relationship between an archivist and people. I create this big coat acting like a frame.

Starting point: Igor the archivist at the balenciaga museum, Performance Olivier Saillard - Tilda Swinton
