'Jung Thug' by Tissue Evolution Club at CAC, Vilnius

As part of the Head With Many Thoughts exhibition in Contemporary Art Center Vilnius, Tissue Evolution Club presents a new institutionally commissioned work titled Jung Thug

Jung Thug is a series of 13 garments based on the teachings and ideas of the 20th century psychologist Carl Gustav Jung, presented in a circular installation that consists of bespoke structures and domestic furniture. The piece could be seen as an act of popularising knowledge in a (very personal) space that’s generally reserved only for advertisements, brand logos and fashion consumerism, or, as re-contextualising fashion to the domain of arts, thus introducing it to new meaningful concepts and contents. 

The author of the work, Tissue Evolution Club (T.E.C.), is an embroidery club founded by Alexander Kelvy, Zoé Renié Harris and Aapo Nikkanen in Paris 2019. T.E.C. was founded as an open-for-all embroidery club in which the members repurpose old clothing and use it to make pieces that exist somewhere in between art, fashion, handcraft and repaired second hand clothing. By redistributing the values inscribed into an artwork to a design object and vice versa, the process places both in a new, vague third space, which forces us to rethink the items we surround us with. As a work, Jung Thug is not only a study of human psyche, but also a critical query of what are the ecological, moral, emotional and intellectual values and problematics attached to the objects in our everyday life.
