Connection was a performance done in collaboration with Alexandre Sousa and Marta Lopes. We started working together because of our common interests related to textiles and wanted to explore this through our collaboration. The suit was conceived to be used in a performance that explored the idea of human connections and how bonds can be both gratifying and restricting.
The performance was presented in an art exhibition at Solar Art Gallery in Vila do Conde (Portugal). We wanted to explore the different rooms of the gallery with the movement of our bodies creating dynamic and interesting shapes caused by the elasticity of the suit.
