Plastic woven bag, cotton string, metal

This work denounces the excessive consumption and waste of the fashion industry. Plastic bags form the basis of it, the same used to transport clothes donated to Africa; the bags were gathered by the artist in the African markets. Drawn on them is an image from the artist’s own memory—disadvantaged children wear the clothes she herself has donated in remote villages. The excess of developed countries, therefore, ends up in the hands of others thanks to the artist. The clothes then take on a new life, becoming fashion statements with a political edge.
