GRIETHA // 2023
Two women, two lives – Grietha and Ellen Korth.
In their childhoods, both were dancing and playing the accordion – one of them with pleasure, the other under pressure. As adults they both became wives with representative duties – one of them with passion, the other reluctantly. One day, Ellen Korth decided to radically cut up all of the clothing that she had worn while not living the life that was hers – cutting them into tiny pieces that she then compressed into abstract forms.
Grietha, on the other hand, still wears the representative clothes that she carefully selected 35 years ago, even in her daily life – they are dear to her, expression of her unique self.
