This project was provoked by an unpleasant event preceding the opening of the Clothed Paintings exhibition in Uzice, in October 2013. It was an unexpected reaction to our exhibition concept, based on conventional and negative personal attitudes towards clothing and gender. I was 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 friend Jelena Kostic took some photos of our friends Dusan and Emily wearing “appropriate” clothes from these lists.
Check out here a little bit more about project and a short text my friend Vladimir wrote about it.
