A DRESS / Address (2018 - 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 poster (and future posters), onto a range of garments, positing the transcript as a potent alternative to branded logo design. The coats and dresses engage with contemporary functional fashion, infusing everyday attire with embodied text in action. The garments may also serve as wearable (trans)scripts for live performances.
