cv ceci est un magasin de vêtements is a project by five people from different backgrounds: visual art, fashion, architecture and anthropology. We are running a temporary boutique without clothes in Schaerbeek/ Brussels. ceci est un magasin de vêtements is an artificial environment. We use it as a place and starting-point for theoretical and practical artistic research into the relation between objects and people as their makers and users.

y Before we eventually shut it down, we would like to invite you for a closing event in our shop in Schaerbeek/ Brussels. Everything that will be present during the six hours of the shop’s opening is or has been subject to our working process of the recent months. As for us the shop was a tool to put things - such as clothes, the neighborhood, a dysfunctional water-tap, foreign languages, a shop-window and many more - at our disposal, the LIQUIDATION TOTALE is a way to hand these things on, although probably in altered states.

Bleu pas d’Ici

Landscape top I The task is, to find an item by means of a description. The description derives from a specimen of this item. This specimen and the sought-after item are samples of a type, they will not be the same, but similar. As it is famously stated, the map is not the territory, the description is not the described, meaning, that an abstraction of a thing naturally is not the thing itself. If it turns out, that the item already is an abstraction and it’s description thus is the abstraction of this abstraction, the question arises, what is it, that has been abstracted in the first place? There is a map, but no territory, a description, but who knows if the described is not yet another description and so on, like the two mirrors, mirroring each other in infinity. No guarantee that it will point the way back to the described, beeline or crabwise, the description might not be a treasure-map at all. Moreover, if the item stays missing, its description can never be proved to be truthful or not. It might, as it were, be a piece of fiction altogether. II The front panels of the shirt are made out of a printed fabric. The print is a depiction of a landscape. The image extends over the whole cloth width and the frontpanel of the garment lengthwise. The print is executed in a specific color-range, in a technique correlating to pointillism. The landscape basically consists of three parts, a foreground, a middle-ground and a background. These correspond with bottom, development of this bottom in central perspective, and sky or sea. There are no human-figures. Further possible elements are animals, flowers (in the foreground), trees, buildings, ships (middle-ground), clouds, waves (background). The depiction is not realistic, due to the applied technique; lines and sharp contrasts have to be avoided, colors and shapes blend as smoothly as possible into one another . The print radiates an atmosphere of dreaminess, solitude, quaintness and introspection. It does not evoke a real landscape but rather an imagined one. There are no signs of contemporariness. There is no wit, humor or irony to the depiction.


III white, light-green, peach-pink-orange, mauve, violet, fir-green, ochre, lightblue, brick-red, grey and dark-grey IIII The Landscape-Top-series today comprises 7 pieces. All shirts are based on the same cut, the back-panel is always the same. The front panels are made of fabric that has been found in different locations at different moments. Each panel complies with the description above. Further shirts can be produced by a) coincidentally finding a piece of fabric that correlates to the description b) commissioning a designer or artist to make the illustration based on the description and print it on fabric Once the stock is exhausted the finding of new fabric will be completely dependent on the description.

Destination Shirt

The Destination Shirt is a series of garments that for a certain period of time will be exposed to environmental conditions. The exposure can have a visible impact on the garment. If the impact is reversible or not, strong or faible or even leading to the desctruction of the garment, is not foreseeable. A Destination Shirt can be purchased. On the following pages you will find information about the destinations for the shirts of edition n째1. This edition comprises twelve destinations. The places are chosen due to their specific climatic and physiographic characteristics. The exact localities, where the shirts eventually will be deposited are being made accessible with the help of people who live and/or work at the locality or closed to it. If you want to buy a shirt, please let us know the destination of your choice. We will take care of the shipping, people on-site will deposit the garment and send it back to us after ten months. Finally, you will be delivered your shirt at your postal address.

The localities for the Destination Shirts n째1 are being made accessible by people who live and/or work at these places. The project would not be possible without their help. The Destination Shirt has been developed during a residency at nadine vzw in Brussels 2012.

Large dunes formed by wind-blown sand of orange color. The dunes reach a hight up to 150m. The locality lies at the edge of the dunes. By nature mobile sand fields are very active. Smaller dunes form and migrate along the flanks of the larger dunes and sand ridges. Occasional precipitation fills basins formed by the dunes; as the water evaporates, salt deposits are left behind. The shirt will be nailed on a wooden wall facing south.

The locality lies on the foot of a dormant volcano, which shows fumarolic activity, but no evidence of eruption in the past 1000 years. The climate of the area is semi arid, lying in a rain shadow. The region is characterized by small areas of natural wet meadow, open hillsides with steppic vegetation, a number of small, spring-fed alpine meadows in side valleys. There is grazing by sheep, goats and horses. The area is known to be stained with intensely colorful flower-patches, when wild poppy, buttercup and irises are blossoming in springtime.

The destination lies on the banks of a river, where it makes sudden turn, flowing in a meander from south to north and thus forming a peculiar shape, symbolically described as a crescent moon. The land is very fertile, because low level floods continually replenish the soil. This sandy-silty loam area is seasonally used to cultivate summer vegetables and melons. The locality is exposed to extreme climatic circumstances: the temperature in winter being around 0°, whereas summer brings temperatures around 45°C, monsoon rain and and an extreme dust and pollution level.

The place lies on the shore of the countries’ longest fjord. It is surrounded by steep basalt mountains on three sides. The area classifies as tundra with an arctic vegetation, mostly characterized by low-shrubs and dwarf-shrubs, sedges, grasses, mosses and lichens. Extensive tracts of land are desert-like, due to erosion. The climate is polar oceanic. The coast remains ice-free through the winter despite its proximity to the Arctic. The shirt will be hung on a drying-rack for fish.

Owing to its low latitude and high elevation, the area experiences a mild subtropical highland climate. With the driest and sunniest conditions in winter, and summers that are warm and damp. The vegetation of the region is extraordinarily rich, as it is extensive rainforest mountains with more than 7000 endemic plant species and around 30 endangered animal species. Over the last decade the area has become a heroin and smuggling region. Marijuana grows wild.The shirt will be hung on a tree.

The locality lies in a region which is marked by broken, rugged, mountainous terrain of extinct volcanoes, lava domes and cinder cones. The vegetation mainly consists of dense, coniferous forests of pine, fir and cedar trees. The climate is temperate with rain all year round. Geographically considered a highland area, with temperate highland valleys. The region is famous for being a hibernation place for migrating monarch butterflies, roosting on the trees in concentrations so dense that the weight of them can snap off branches.


Cotton is a soft, fluffy staple fiber that grows in a boll, or protective capsule. The plant belongs to the mallow family and is of the genus Gossypium, a shrub native to tropical and subtropical regions. It’s flower is alike the ones of hibiscus or the hollyhock. The fiber is almost pure cellulose. (1) Cellulose is the most common organic compound on Earth. It has no taste, is odorless, insoluble in water and most organic solvents and is biodegradable. It can be broken down chemically into its glucose units by treating it with concentrated acids at high temperature. (2a,b,c) The fibre in the closed cotton-capsule is round. When the capsule opens, the fibre dries and its section becomes kidney-shaped.Alike the annual rings of trees the cotton fibre consists of cellulose layers that grow from the outside inwards, leaving the core of the fibre hollow. When it dries the fibre turns around its longitudinal axis until it looks like a flattened, twisted hose. The layered and hollow structure of the fibre is easily penetrated by water, and allows humidity to be stored. Sweat can thus be absorbed and later washed out. Through absorption the fibre swells and the layers of cellulose are densely compressed. The soaked fibre is thus more resistant than the dry fibre. Cotton is composed of highly regular cellulose molecule chains which makes the fibre strong but quite inelastic. (1) Cotton can absorb up to 20% vaporous humidity without feeling humid. It can store humidity up to 65% of its own weight without leaking, but dries slowly. The wet cotton fibre is even more resistant than the dry one. (2a,b,c) Cotton is resistant to sweat, bases, chemical cleaning but sensitive to concentrated acids, strong exposure to light, steady temperature above 200°C and enduring dampness. (2a,b,c) Natural fibers have to be protected from any humidity, be it from too much $loration, mold, decomposition. Organic fibers exposed to humidity tend to staining, smelling dull and molding. The fiber gets less tear- resistant and elastic. Contact with steel and iron strapping can cause rust damage through corrosion. (3) Natural fibers are highly hygroscopic and can absorb large quantities of damp without feeling humid. The volume of cotton bales increases in 40 - 45% by bulking. This can lead to the bursting of containers. (3) Textiles are conserved only under extremely rare and fortunate circumstances. Vegetable textiles need for their preservation a neutral to alkaline environment around 10pH. Textile materials, as soon as they get in touch with soil, will be decomposed by micro-organisms, bacteria and fungi until they are entirely destroyed. Ideal storage conditions are always provided by a combination of conditions such as complete absence of oxygen and light or an extreme and constant dry storage. Textiles can be preserved by storing them in an environment that is unfavorable for micro-organisms. Even if textiles have been preserved for centuries the process of decomposition spontaneously starts in the moment they get into contact with air and light. Archeologists witnessed how textiles from just opened graves lost their bright colors within seconds, turned greybrown and crumbled away in a moment. (4) The ‘grey cloth’, woven cotton fabric in its loom-state, not only contains impurities, including warp size, but requires further treatment in order to develop its full textile potential. (5) desizing, scouring, bleaching, mercerizing, singeing, raising, calendaring, sanforizing (5) removing the size (protective coating) from the warp yarns of woven fabrics with natural or synthetic sizing agents; removing natural wax and non-fibrous impurities during chemical washing process, improving whiteness with oxidizing agents, improving lustre, strength and dye affinity through treatment with caustic soda solution to cause swelling of the fibres , enhancing smoothness by burning off surface fibres, lifting surface of fibres through treatment with sharp teeth to impart hairiness, softness and warmth, passing fabric between heated rollers to produce smooth, polished or embossed effect on one or both sides of the fabric, preventing fabric and the produced garment from shrinking after production (5) Many modifications and treatments have been studied to improve resistance to rotting, heat, and weathering and to improve laundering and dyeing characteristics of fabrics. Many of the treatments require the use and handling of chemically active agents such as acetic anhydride in glacial acetic acid with which perchloric acid is used as a catalyst for partial acetylation, monoethylamine for decrystallization and acrylonitrile that are or may be used form explosive mixtures with air. They are toxic or at least severely irritation to the eyes, nose, and throat. Some are skin vesicants. (6)


One of the greatest threats to textiles is light. The worst damage is caused by ultraviolet (UV) radiation from natural daylight and from fluorescent light bulbs. However, while the UV rays damage most rapidly, the entire light spectrum causes textile dyes to fade and the fibers to become brittle. There is some protection in keeping window shades pulled down or shutters closed during the sunniest times of the day. UV filtering materials or films can be placed over windows and fluorescent bulbs. Perhaps the most important rule of thumb is taking care to use or display your textile for limited periods of time. Ideally, rotation should be done seasonally - display your textile four months, and then allow it to ‘rest’ in proper storage for the remainder of the year. (7) UV Index 0-2 3-5 6-7 8-10 11+

Low danger from the sun’s UV rays for the average person. Moderate risk of harm from unprotected skin. High risk of harm from unprotected sun exposure. Very high risk of harm from unprotected sun exposure. Extreme risk of harm from unprotected sun exposure.
