Her (un) Doing is a feminist look at the traditional “learn to dress myself” fabric books, exploring the simple tasks involved in dressing a small girl and examining the unstated power structures embedded within such everyday actions. In this work, I reduced the process of getting dressed to a series of encounters with different fasteners – the buttons, zippers and snaps that keep clothing in place on the body. Simultaneously, I looked at getting dressed as not only a functional procedure, but also as the process of being fastened into a gender.
