Contemporary environments and habits are building egoistic relationships. Technologies, trends, public spaces tend to focus our attention on ourselves. Interactions and attention to others is happening in a self-centered way and tends to inhibits consideration and empathy.
Investigating the notions of relationship, link and social interactions, Shani Ha designed a series of wearable textile sculptures for two.
The users get trapped in these extended clothes and suddenly become co-dependant.
The double clothes allow us experience a tangible connexion to the other user. Every movement has to be made in conscience of both. Visually; the two bodies are linked and create a surreal double persona.
These double clothes are a poetic response to contemporary self-absorbed behaviours. They lead to series of photographs bringing these sculptural Siamese in different contexts and to performances challenging the relationship and attention between the performers.
