Transformable (Body) Wear is a course unit designed and taught by Prof. Regina (Maria) Möller
at the Sculpture – Expanded Media Department. This course is project oriented and structured in
lab time and theory / lecture time, including site visits within Trondheim and the NTNU campus. In
its nature this workshop is transformable and extends the fields of sculpture as expanded media.
The course started in autumn term 2014 with the objective to develop a transformable piece of
work that relates to the physical appearance of body and its social construct, the second skin.
(Body) Wear, as for example cloth, accessories, scents, body paint lies at the margins of the body
and marks the boundary between self and other, self and space. Which messages are signaled
to our surroundings, environments via our body wear appearances? What relation is and can
be constructed between textiles, cloth and social political environment? What is the embedded
meaning of second skin – protection, masquerade, mutation, camouflage ...? How can (Body)
Wear be transformed to shelter? These are just some of the questions that have been raised in
The participants of the course will show their work results / work in progress in Galleri KIT -
opening on Monday, April 20th at 19.00 o’clock.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Transformable (Body) Wear show!
