MADE IN MACRITCHIE
A collection of garments made for walking in MacRitchie Nature Reserve, a tropical rainforest in Singapore.
The patterns of the garments are created digitally on spot in the forest, followed by digital printing on textiles, which are then sewn into garments on demand.
This "forest fashion outfit" asks the wearer to explore issues of (be)longing, how to become a local and adapt, strangeness and perception of nature and self.
The garments have been used and exhibited in various forms at L'Observatoire, the Substation, Institute of Contemporary Art at LASALLE College of the Arts, and at art events and walks in Singapore, 2016-19.
