I WANT TO REACH ABSOLUTE ZERO

The freedom to do nothing, spend the days to postpone, skip commitments. Procrastinate.
Inspired by the language and mood of the 1967 film, Éric Rohmer's "La Collectionneuse", in a hot summer on the French coast. In a general summer mode, oversized, relaxed and flowing, overlapping pieces of tight knitwear, inspired by the bathing suits of the 60s. The contrast - graphically explored - of feeling pleasure in delaying and passing tasks, turns out to be a repentance and a sense of guilt.
Dropped shoulders, oversized and sloppy silhouettes, embody the idea of boredom, the long days of summer. Annoyance, which generates repetition of both acts and thoughts, and distraction - all details arouse interest.
The deconstruction of the pieces is a result of distraction and postponement of tasks and stages, where details of classics are decontextualized or divided.
