ACTORWEAR – artwork concept – September 2011 – Antoine Schmitt
ACTORWEAR is a distributed artwork that is based on a clothing line of T-shirts, jackets, sweatshirts, etc.. displaying the word ACTOR — or its translation in another language — in white capital letters on black background, printed on the front and the back, like the FBI or POLICE jacket graphic design. The artwork is activated when someone wears such an ACTOR apparel in their normal life in public : in the eyes of the people who see him/her, the wearer effectively becomes an actor. This assertion of a fundamentally written essence of reality leads to questionings of metaphysical, psychological, aesthetical, social and political nature.
