The text in this publication was commissioned by SEA Foundation, and was conceived against the backdrop of Mila Lanfermeijer’s residency period at SEA Foundation, culminating in the exhibition Ever so Humble, Ever so Proud (2018). This solo exhibition showed the works of the interdisciplinary artist combined into an installation, and was the result of Mila Lanfermeijer’s artistic research where she explored the possibilities of a garment as a sculptural medium and canvas. Her oeuvre is characterized by a critical and deconstructive attitude towards the political, social and cultural concepts that are often projected on material objects, as well as the artisanal production processes in our society.
