Bojan Sarcevic

DIE LIEBLINGSKLEIDER, DIE MÄNNER UND FRAUEN WÄHREND IHRER ARBEIT GETRAGEN HABEN

27 February 2000 – 02 April 2000

For the project Bojan Sarcevic picked fifteen women and men. The Teammates were: Auto mechanics, carpenters, builders, swampers and others, whose work produces something beside from the "main" goalom, which some call dirt. He asks them to do their work in clothes in which they feel extremely comfortable. Over a longer period the signs of work - material and movement - were written in the clothes.

The clothes have been presented on tables. Trousers, shirts and skirts became sculptural objects, afflicted with a special aura. A normally not visible state of soiledness has been convicted into the permanence, the evidence of accomplished work becomes an expressive sign.

Together with other elements and materials in the room the clothes formed a tribute to physical work and its traces.
