Entering into this yellow landscape, this exhibition invites visitors to wear and inhabit Huddlewear, social clothing, that become tools for activating exchanges in relationships between individuals, groups and communities. The interconnected wearable artwork can be worn by pairs and groups of up to twelve people and aim to explore the wearer’s sense of self and vulnerability during real time moments of interaction and gathering in real time.
