words Julia Hovve

I have been thinking of the seasons as markers of years. I have also been reading Rousseau and am thrilled by his literary depictions of nature, humanity and how it ties in together. The use of clothes is so important to his philosophy – after all – what in Christian ethics stop us from ‘shame’, and what God gave to Human so they could be ‘modest’- what even is shame? I think of natural places. I collaborated with some up and coming Dutch designers who I thought really fit in this vein. 

I wanted to break away totally from society, the layers of life, the layers of forced humanity - even nude we are not nude. and induce an atmosphere that even though the subjects were clothed, like sculptures, they were dressed only in things aesthetically reminiscent of autumn, of nature, of earth, air and ephemerality of the moments spent in nature that bring us back to our dark cores and spirit. It should be felt rather than theorized, or its meaning considered:

“If we assume man has been corrupted by an artificial civilization, what is the natural state? The state of nature from which he has been removed? Imagine, wandering up and down the forest without industry, without speech, and without home.” -  Jean-Jacques Rousseau
