About Mella Jaarsma
The artist has become known for her complex costume installations and her focus on questions of cultural and racial diversity, which are often embedded within our clothing, our bodies and our food. In this series of works, Mella Jaarsma again returns to her practice of highlighting how clothing can reveal insights into our sense of social space, by playing with layers of material, and themes of sartorial inhibition as well as the subconscious cultural dimensions of housing and architecture. The artist often presents her works in public with them being worn by models. Dicabut is a commentary on the decline of cultural diversity.
