Striped Pole Dance (Costume)
2016
Wood, spray paint, fixings, Velcro, aluminium, Lycra bodysuits, Vans shoes
Dimensions variable

A remix of an Oscar Schlemmer costume, this wearable sculpture extends on the idea of sculpture as performance. Striped poles are prosthetically attached to the limbs and torso and so are activated in direct relation to the movement the body. The graphic elements of the costume are interchangeable to allow for variations that respond to various performance contexts.
