Garment Graffiti Installation at Bijbels Museum Amsterdam
Thomas Voorn creates colourful environmental friendly landscape pollution. He travels around with bags full of clothes, his alphabet, to create Garment Graffiti in a typical colour range. In several photo series the garments and letters are subtly pushed to their limits. Garments are thrown into a duckweed ditch, hung up as washing in a winter forest and layed out on rooftops, creating surreal confrontations with words for a passerby. At times the garment typography appears as leftovers of a person undressed, looking for friction between clothes, text and context. For WinterSalon Amsterdam he creates a large floor installation at the Bijbels Museum in the heart of Amsterdam.
Thomas Voorn developed his typography in 2006, still resulting in projects, commissions and exhibitions.
