is part of an ongoing project by Jan van Esch delving into subliminal psychological motives and the powerplay between giver and receiver. Specifically , he examines how the western world deals with used clothes through performances, installations and drawings.
Through a rite-of-passage, he gives the clothes the attention they lacked by meticulously drawing their every fiber. Thereby, he creates life-seized portraits of the garments. A portrait of forgiving, a portrait of something overlooked.
