Abstract [en]

This work started with a journey to Cuba in 2008 and is homage to the city of Havana and its working-class residents. The collection is a collage of an image of an interior in an old, abandoned castle and a mosaic tile from a street in Havana. Materials are carefully sourced to represent the history and present of the city but also to give suggestions for the future. Worn and torn furniture materials have been used in contrast to more new and shiny. Since the Habaneros are experts in creating out of the existing most part of the collecion is either reconstructed, repaired or reproductions of the old. The result is a collection containing historical insinuations as well as ideas for the future. The garments are both showpieces as well as more wearable.
