Abstract:

"The common thread in Empty Dress is the role clothing plays in the construction of identity. Removal of the body calls attention to the artifice of clothes and makes their implicit codes more accessible to interpretation. The body's absence also demands that we read between the lines, examing the meaning of what is not represented--examing the conditions of representation itself. The fabric of each work is woven of many threads"--Page 13.
