Dr. Romanelli uses his surgical clothing aesthetic and envelopes a bespoke skull, stitched together in a Japanese boro cloth-like style. Different fabric sections of the skull are sewn on and peeled off, Dr. Romanelliʼs piece evolving through different looks, referencing the history of the boro fabric, one that saw the re-imagining and re-using of materials to create something that represents both new and tells the tale of what came before, the generational storybooks of textile history.
The skull is part of the Beck’s Green Box Project and will be exhibited from September 29th until October 2nd 2011 at
800 W Olympic Blvd
Los Angeles CA 90015
