De Geuzen Uniform: Frivolity and Folly

Made in 2001, Frivolity and Folly was the second De Geuzen Uniform and was originally exhibited at the Bienal de Valencia (Spain.) Tailored to the idiosyncrasies of our very different body shapes, the De Geuzen uniforms are a collection of handmade garments playing with female identity. Frivolity and Folly is the most elaborate of the Geuzen uniforms. Made in collaboration with fashion designer Margreeth Olsthoorn and hand-tailored by Sandra van Venrooij, the dresses are constructed of a fleshy girdle material. Conceived with careful attention to detail, all three dresses contain the full list of “geuzennamen” in a light crème vinyl.
