Line Sandvad Mengers Promised Land Many colors

Coat of many colors

 

Inspired by Dolly Partons hit song from 1969. 

The song tells the sentimental story of how a mother makes her daughter a coat from rags. For the Promised Land exhibition at The Berlin Office, Berlin I made a coat out of pieces of fabrics I have collected over the years. The coat was made for my daughter Liva. She loves to dress up and when putting on dresses made from scarves and blankets she also creates a world of imagination where anything can happen. Putting on costumes is a way of playing with and creating identity. Clothing is a space you can bring with you. A space to provide you with confidence.
