Ute Monjau-Porath

I understand my work as assistance to your legal and critical requirement to obscure your body with clothes in society.

Clothes serve as physical and social cover, offering protection, expression, a social connection or disconnection, conformity or protest, social and religious values, isolation, ambition.

I understand my work as an offering:
ever changing combinations of leather, textiles, found treasures, hardware into assemblages of varied colors, textures, patterns and shapes in which an obscured body can live to it's fullest expression of fit, ease, adventure, comfort, joy and dazzle.
