A DRESS / Address (2019 - ongoing)
Suzanne Mcclelland + Alix Pearlstein
Following the Kavanaugh hearings in Fall 2018, Suzanne McClelland published an edition of posters with Space Sisters Press titled “ADDRESS” which transcribed the questions that senators asked Christine Blasey Ford during her testimony to Congress. A DRESS / Address, a collaboration between Suzanne McClelland and Alix Pearlstein, is an artwork that transfers this and future texts onto a range of garments, positing the transcript as a potent alternative to branded logo design. The garments engage with contemporary functional fashion, infusing everyday and event attire with embodied text in action. These wearable transcripts perform themselves.
