"A series of 36 drawings on small thick samples of floor carpet. I derived the title from the newly released biography of punk legend Vivien Westwood. I copied 36 recent fashion silhouettes from Vogue, each inspired by a word from the biography, in which fairly frank language is used. Each word in this collection of drawings is also part of the figure’s outfit. The 36 figures were given a magnetic back and were shown in and on an open iron industrial locker. As such, they form part of the third cycle of my HeadNurse exhibitions, which carry the name De vereiste finesse (The Required Particular)."
