Fashion, the process of putting clothes on forms a metaphor of human life for Anastasia Kuzmina (the documentation of the Untitled performance). Following the tyranny of fashion, we renew our clothes every season, buying new items which stuff our wardrobes then.

Fashion, the process of putting clothes on forms a metaphor of human life for Anastasia Kuzmina (the documentation of the Untitled performance). Following the tyranny of fashion, we renew our clothes every season, buying new items which stuff our wardrobes then.

The artist spreads a pile of clothes in front of her and starts to pull one thing after another on herself, gradually turning into a bizarre, shapeless object. «A person accumulates many things, information, stereotypes during his or her a life. This overgrowth process is gradual and passes unnoticed, turning into a habitual action. Then the moment comes when one has to free oneself from this accumulation he or she no longer needs, and to go back to the zero condition of the body.»

For mass-media

I gathered all the unwanted items that had piled up over the years. Laying them out before me, I pulled them on, one after the other, and gradually turned into a strange object, like a living sculpture or a giant onion from a children’s riddle. After putting on the last garment I sat down and began cutting away the layers of clothing, liberating my body from this created incrustation.

Throughout their lives people accumulate masses of things, information, stereotypes. This process of acquisition occurs little by little, unnoticed, becoming a habitual act. The moment comes when it is essential to break free of everything accumulated or unnecessary and return to a zero body state.
