The video documents a performance in which the performer folds a collection of 29 cocktail garments vintage 1965 -1975. The static camera is trained in a semi-close up position focussed on the disembodied work of the hands upon the garments. The video is accompanied by a subtle audio track that reveals the sounds of the performer’s gestures in dialogue with the absent body. From the project rest.
