three objects, multiple identities
Taking its inspiration from the objects a Buddhist monk must carry, Drap-O is a concise fashion formula for the urban nomad seeking to explore world sartorial identities with 3 simple accessories:
1 x stick
1 x long piece of cotton rope
1 x large (approx. 1 m x 1.6m) piece of black cotton fabric
Live performance demonstration available on request.
Beyond Bounds | a collaboration with Othello De’Souza Hartley
Dominique was interested in Othello’s ‘Masculinity Project (Phase 5)’ and Othello wanted to know more about the performative aspect of the ‘Black Series’. The starting point for Beyond Bounds was Drap-O. Here the collaboration started, keeping these simple objects they created a new piece together, ‘Beyond Bounds’, which opens a conversation between their individual practices around gendered identities and notions of freedom.
