Occupying Spaces: The White Dress Project explores how we interpret and display dress in the context of the gallery. It is customary for exhibits in one show to be exhibited similarly: in this exhibition the identical objects are displayed in different ways. The intention is to reveal how context and meaning are inextricably entwined. Notions of singularity, reproduction and multiplicity in display have been addressed by using one pattern and type of fabric which multiple
garments have been made (much like the multiple facsimiles that can be
made from a photographic negative).
