Melati Suryodarmo – ‘Kleidungsaffe (Clothes Ape)’

Ikon Gallery, Birmingham, UK

25 May – 31 August 2023

Presented as part of Melati Suryodarmo’s exhibition ‘Passionate Pilgrim’, her work ‘Kleidungsaffe (Clothes Ape)’ is a delegated durational performance, first performed and created by Melati in 2006. For three hours, a performer wraps their legs and arms around a tree of clothes – a 6.2 metres high pillar wrapped in colourful garments donated by Collection 4 Clothes, a West Midlands ethical recycling organisation.

The performance invites us to contemplate the relationship between our clothing consumption and desire to gain social status.
