My Aunts and Me

My Aunts and Me is a collage project from 2010 consisting of three paper dresses and a paper corset. The dresses are based on Vogue dress patterns from the 1930s, '40s and '50s. The material in each dress is covered in classified ads for women seeking men of the time period of the dress. There are also agony aunt columns on relationships of the time. The corset is made out of texts from contemporary property ads highlighting exposure, design, looks and modernity.

 

The project is a reminder of the radical changes in the roles of women in the Western world in a relatively short time span.
