The Wear series was started in 2005. Currently, it comprises 15 parts, with each new part added chronologically to the earlier ones. Works, gadgets, and even sculptures function as extensions of the body in some forced process. The process, which visitors to the exhibition can try out themselves, is continuous and unfinished. It is an attempt to fight banality with stupidity. Naturally, it is unsuccessful, possibly amusing, or just cynically mundane. The gadgets are used in videos. In Wear videos they are used as props, serving as equipment or outfits for the simple function of performing some act. They are functional objects, made for a specific production or ritual act.
They catch a person caught in the sphere of democratic labor, rights, suppressed freedom of choice, and individual need for physical activity devoid of any pragmatic or production reasons.
