Rodrigo Acosta frames details where seams and structure give an indication of the material's history. The pieces evoke textile memories, a silky blouse with a familiar perfume, a strengthened collar, a well-used pillowcase, the last button at the neck of a jacket, an embroidery with hundreds of small stitches. Or a shirt covering the body and hides its imperfections, insecurities and fear.
