CTIF: Cover Up and Show Off


Color transforms. Applied like paint or makeup, color can accentuate or cover up, and that goes for pigment as well as cloth on skin. Think about how Christo & Jeanne-Claude use fabrics to obscure and thereby neutralize politically fraught objects, buildings and geography:



Sometimes the choice of color implies both, though, hiding and flaunting. The question for our purposes here is where does neutrality get mixed up in all this obscuring and invisibility? Is a neutral color very different from a saturated one, if you’re talking about lipstick, or a niqab? The unguent calls attention to the lips, whether with red to mimic an inflamed vulva or black to remind onlookers of the wearer’s… uniqueness. The niqab hides the wearer while making her stand out at the same time; attention is drawn by virtue of wishing to remain hidden from attention.
