Tanja Radež: RECYCLED T-SHIRTS
RECYCLE – REDESIGN
Every year, Mladi levi festival creates their own festival T-shirts, which are both practical souvenirs and living messages. These T-shirts are – the same as badges and as pens used to be – contemporary mediums of visual moments and also often have a promotional purpose. In every wardrobe, we can find old and redundant T-shirts: those from last year marathon, a cultural or charity event, those which can’t be combined with the rest of our clothes or those with obsolete messages. This year festival’s theme is recycling. Therefore, we collected old and forgotten T-shirts and uncluttered a lot of wardrobes. Tanja Radež has given all those T-shirts a new life. They will be given to all who deserve them. The marriage of old and new visual messages has created new and completely unique dialogues. Due to the Mladi levi flair, these T-shirts will get a new chance and maybe become the most popular piece of clothing in Slovenia.
Tanja is the residential designer at Bunker, Old Power Station – Elektro Ljubljana and the Kranj Prešeren Theatre; she is a dreamer, a collector and archivist of ostalgia. Tanja has created a variety of different integral designs. Her 15th personal organiser will be published in December of this year.
