Strolling in Grandma’s Clothing

‘Strolling in Grandma’s Clothing’ (original in Dutch: Flaneren in Oma’s kleren) is a collaboration between Bobbine and journalist Evi Guldemeester. Together they create a playful connection between story and image. It is a long-term project focusing on the identity of existing garments in relation to the story of the (old) original wearer. How was the concept of ‘dressing the body’ perceived by the older generations and what can we learn from that? This is the first visual translation of their findings. This translation emphasizes the concepts of nostalgia, (re)appreciation and emotional
sustainability. All objects are made of garments and through the QR codes you can discover the (life) stories behind all these items and original owners.
