Tom Vanderborght - Solo
To be confronted with emptiness is a radical experience. We feel displaced in our own body. It feels like we are losing our face, our connection to the world and the reality. We turn to ourselves, we dissolve, we get reduced to our core.
It’s all about us. All about me.
To confront emptiness as a fashion designer led to a radical choice: The total rejection of the human body, although the body is the ultimate starting point of all my work. The human body gives clothes a reason to exist. It gives them shape and movement.
By erasing the body, they become vulnerable. Static Objects. Silent reminders of what’s left behind. In this state of transition, they define their own freedom. In classifying them, space for new memories is created. Freedom found trough emptiness.
ALL ABOUT ME is an introspection.
A celebration of the human.
“Become totally empty
Quiet the restlessness of the mind
Only then will you witness everything unfolding from emptiness”
