Dress Me Up, 2011, video, 20’
Małgorzata Goliszewska’s video documents an experiment the artist carried out on her relatives and friends. In response to criticism of her dress-sense, she invited her grandmother, mother and friend to dress her up in whatever way they felt would suit her best. In so doing, the artist created a situation which allowed her, through dialogue and action, not only to analyse her relationship with the people dressing her, but also to highlight the role played by clothing in the context of identity and generational, social, cultural and gender affiliation.
