The label, according to the Cambridge English Dictionary, is a piece of paper or other material that gives you information about the object it is attached to.
On the surface, this information may appear as dry facts, but what if we unravel what is written on all these labels and dig deeper into the realities of the textile industry? What resources were required in producing our clothes, how far have they travelled to reach us, whose hands have sewn them together? And what does all this information mean in the context of overconsumption?
Vernissage: Wednesday 6/3/19 at 17:00. Exhibition open 6–20/3.
Carla Phillips, Luisa Stoll and Lukas Kunwaryanto studies at Linnaeus University’s design program Visual Communications + Change. The installation Labels is a project completed fall of 2018 during the module “Change”.
