Yoshinari Nishio: Domino


During his residency in Loughborough, artist Yoshinari Nishio created a series of wearable flags patch-worked from hundreds of unwanted garments collected from the local area.  Based upon the idea of separation and re-arrangement of national flags, these new designs reflected upon the notion of being set free from national or personal identity and were used as a mechanism for dialogue and exchange.

The flags formed part of a fashion intervention with the public around the streets of Loughborough, which was documented in a free newspaper. The box like shape of the wearable flags referenced human billboards used by Domino’s pizza company as a form of advertising, which Yoshinari became interested in as a ‘new fashion’ for Loughborough.

Yoshinari Nishio has worked on art projects presenting novel angles on clothing and its potential power, consistently referring to the relationship between fashion and communication.
