Drap-O: three objects and multiple identities

Taking its inspiration from the objects a Buddhist monk must carry, Drap-O is a concise fashion formula for the urban nomad seeking to explore world sartorial identities with 3 simple accessories:

1 x stick

1 x long piece of cotton rope

1 x large (approx. 1 m x 1.6m) piece of black cotton fabric

Live performance demonstration available on request.

DrapO is an anti-fashion art project part of DominiqueBB’s ‘Black Series‘ with photography created in collaboration with London-based artist Othello DeSouza-Hartley


Beyond Bounds | a collaboration with Othello De’Souza Hartley

Dominique was interested in Othello’s ‘Masculinity Project (Phase 5)’ and Othello wanted to know more about the performance and Butoh element within Dominique’s ‘Black Series’ and specifically ‘Black Walk (London)’. The starting point for Beyond Bounds was another photo series, ‘Drap-O’, which involves the creation of identities based on 3 elements: a length of rope, a stick and a piece of black cloth. This is where the collaboration started, keeping these simple objects they created a new piece together, ‘Beyond Bounds’, which opens a conversation between their individual practices.
