Gender Clothes was accidental byproduct of another project I was working on last summer. I was provoked so much by homophobic reaction to our exhibition concept, that it kept me thinking about it for days – about gender and sex and their relationship with clothes, in context of the Serbian incapacity to distinguish between the two. So I decided to make a series of photographs of people wearing “gender appropriate” clothes. Nouns in Serbian grammar have three genders: masculine, feminine and neuter. So I divided garments into two groups by their nouns’ gender, and my dear friend Jelena Kostic took some photos of Dusan and Emily wearing “appropriate” clothes chosen from these lists.
|MASCULINE NOUNS||FEMININE NOUNS|
I am happy to invite you to join me in boosting this image/noun list – just take a photo of what you are wearing at the moment, then take another photo or two of your outfit using appropriate list of nouns (if you are a girl use a list of feminine nouns, if you are a boy use a list of masculine nouns) and send it with basic info (name, city, country… whatever you want).

‘Animal: The Other Side of Evolution’
London based fashion designer Ana Rajcevic has created a series of 8 amazingly striking sculptural pieces that appear as natural extension (or adornments) of the human body, suggesting strength, power and sensuality. Tusk, horn and spine-like pieces come from a unique visual interpretation of animal skeleton structures. Pieces, that are designed to fit over the face, neck and head are made in complex moulds from fiberglass, resin and silicone.
In spite of a rather unconvincing, and somewhat unnecessary, scenario (a ‘brutalist dystopia’) that should give a backdrop to his work , Martijn Van Strien has produced a line of visually striking and clear-cut rugged cloaks and hoods, and all of them just by using black tarpaulin. More cloaks, less talk!

Junk Bones is an exploration of the garment as an artifact, relic, or ghost. Torn and shredded materials have been woven, braided, and stitched back together. Paint, shellac, plastic, and rust have been used to coat and cover surfaces, transforming soft fiber materials into brittle exteriors, and stiff, rigid structures. When worn, the garments begin to unravel, decay, and crack.
