Based on the edition “20122TK1JEANS” Tobias Kaspar relates fashion with its display and brings it back into art with this unique installation. By converting his ready-to-wear pair of jeans into an installation together with a C-print, depicting the advertising action for the jeans-edition, Kaspar crosses from art to fashion and back again. Using the high-quality photo print as a mainstream promotional device and showing the folded garments in a store-like display the artist reveals how the fashion and art world follow a similar set of rules.
