Additional Information

Item details
This tote was designed exclusively by Edith B from Tate Collective. Tate Collective is a youth art initiative run by and for young creatives. Tate merchandise set a competition to Tate Collective to produce a product design with a theme of using a whole genre of artistic expressions, urban life, music and street art but also has a strong link to Tate. The Artist Within was one of the successful entries.

Being very inspired by Joel Peter Witkin’s work which presents the human condition in a very erratic way, Edith became interested in the human body and started going back to the Hunterian Museum which she was introduced to by fashion tutors in college. The museum has a collection of human and animal body parts, bones and organs all in big jars as well as some videos of how surgery is carried out on vital organs. Edith was fascinated by what really is inside of us - the structure and shape of bones and organs and started thinking about having a t-shirt that can express the human condition of people her age – vibrant and colourful yet with certain melancholia of trying to figure out who we are as people. “I personally think we are all artists and that creatively using our youthful ideas and experiences we will become the person we want to be.”

Hand wash only. Matching t-shirt also available.
