We share an interest in the social meaning of clothes and appearance. With a fascination for people’s personal and collective dress references, we research different approaches to clothing, dress codes, do’s and dont’s. Together we create multifaceted bodies of work, revolving around our current subject matter, under the collaborative label HAIK.
We use quasi-anthropological and sociological methods. With our work based on firsthand experience, observations and interviews in our local environment, we share our research with each other to gain a wider perspective and context.
HAIK creates collections of clothing and items for sale in addition to video installations, sculpture and various projects, all addressing the same theme. These exhibitions will tour internationally throughout the season, to galleries, our stockists and other collaborators.
