Portraits by Arthur Cooke

Series Archive was born in 2015 with a single dress design. The project centers clothing objects as the primary medium in larger performative works. These clothing objects have tactile and/or conceptual function (read: they play a role) in performance. Alike a sewing circle, many of the project's works are made possible through collaboration with other artists and makers across disciplines. 


Currently on Series 3, Series Archive is intended to develop and grow over the course of the artist’s lifetime. Pictured is the 5-year-old, 5-inch binder, which serves as the living catalogue and microcosm for the speculative scope of the entire project. 90% of this binder are works in progress, not yet realized.
