Polar Bear Blues is the work that was created after two dreams I had in 2018, which gave life to a series of drawings, paintings and performances. These generated multidisciplinary and collaborative artwork in photographic record, art object, music, textile design, and clothing, in hopes to comprehend and to explore
the act of staining all that is white. All this to investigate, reflect and inhabit the paradigm of western culture to project the ideal of perfection in the feminine.
The dresses in this collection were made in collaboration with Cocoe Voci and Marie Nelson.
