Derick Melander

Installations by artist Derick Melander using old clothes.

"I create large geometric configurations from carefully folded and stacked second-hand clothing. These structures take the form of wedges, columns and walls, typically weighing between five hundred pounds and two tons. Larger works are often site-responsive,creating discrete environments."

"As clothing wears and fades, stains and stretches, it becomes an intimate record of our physical presence. it traces the edge of the body, defining the boundary between the self and the outside world." Derick Melander
