As individuals, as women, as Westeners we put on jeans. The contemporary corset. A familiar attire -this country was not built by men in suits- liberated, original, authentic -do you want to know what comes between me and my … ? Nothing!- the female body has indeed been portrayed as liberated in favour of advertising jeans, but has she just as much been constrained by the same material and clothing? -AAA IIII Æ Æ, reading is to the mind what Calvins are to the body- Worker’s Choice explores how the female body has been choreographed by jeans and its material denim -I did love you once- how the female appearance is portrayed -so that’s what happened to me, I’ve been calvinised- we dive into the liberated, free, sexual -person- and start with four legs and two pairs of blue jeans.
