Socks in stock!

Stockings, foot warmers, or simply socks are names for the piece of cloth which we wear most days. We dedicated an exhibition to this symbol for warm and neatly dressed feet. After the opening of the launderette in 2000 we firstly kept lost socks hoping their owners would reunite their separated pairs. Far from it! In the meantime we have been collecting them with the idea of an exhibition in the back of our heads.

2500 socks have been collected since. Usually they are pressed tight to the drum during the spinning cycle and thus are overlooked when the machine is emptied. Now they are given a fresh purpose. Their number is growing daily.
