Returns by Nellie Gossen

January 7 @ 8:00 am - February 3 @ 5:00 pm

January 7 @ 8:00 am February 3 @ 5:00 pm

Interdisciplinary artist Nellie Gossen’s Returns is a convergence of dance, labour and garment fabrication: an innovative experiment and month-long artistic inquiry into the standard 30-day retail return policy.

Garments of all kinds are purchased and brought to the studio where they are carefully disassembled, and their materials reimagined into new forms. Gossen works alongside dance artist Erika Mitsuhashi, clothing artist Jaewoo Kang and visual artist tone puorro to construct an ever-shifting landscape of garment constellations, sculptural configurations, and unfolding movement scores. At the end of the 30-day period, all garments are meticulously reconstructed back into their original forms and returned to stores for a full refund.
