~~~(Concept: wearable performance art)::::

Hand embroidered white jumper with black string depicting the concept of a performative and externalised state of being apologetic. Instead of repressing or harbouring feelings of guilt, desire, perversion, etc, the wearer can publicly display their affective state and past events which may hold conflict or trigger tension. Furthermore, historical artefacts which are both intimate and personal are made even more vulnerable by this act of wearing it as an everyday and integrated piece of clothing, challenging the notion of a sacred and internalised state of suffering and remorse. The anecdotal and narrative nature of the sentences also serves to conjure a more personalised and relatable form by evoking a standard post-pubescent mood. Ultimately the wearer can confront and be confronted by their own clothing.

Columbia student will carry her mattress until her rapist exits school
September 2, 2014

While most students at Columbia University will spend the first day of classes carrying backpacks and books, Emma Sulkowicz will start her semester on Tuesday with a far heavier burden. The senior plans on carrying an extra-long, twin-size mattress across the quad and through each New York City building – to every class, every day – until the man she says raped her moves off campus.

“I was raped in my own bed,” Sulkowicz told me the other day, as she was gearing up to head back to school in this, the year American colleges are finally, supposedly, ready to do something about sexual assault. “I could have taken my pillow, but I want people to see how it weighs down a person to be ignored by the school administration and harassed by police.”

Sulkowicz is one of three women who made complaints to Columbia against the same fellow senior, who was found “not responsible” in all three cases. She also filed a police report, but Sulkowicz was treated abysmally – by the cops, and by a Columbia disciplinary panel so uneducated about the scourge of campus violence that one panelist asked how it was possible to be anally raped without lubrication.

So Sulkowicz joined a federal complaint in April over Columbia’s mishandling of sexual misconduct cases, and she will will hoist that mattress on her shoulders as part savvy activism, part performance art. “The administration can end the piece, by expelling him,” she says, “or he can, by leaving campus.”

As painful as I know the constant reminder of attending school with her rapist must be, I’m glad she won’t be the only one forced to remember. I hope the rapist drops out immediately…or better yet, I hope he faces the justice he deserves.
