A Catwalk on Riva, 2020
Mannequin, pedestal, used clothing, custom made printed silk scarf , 204 × 60 × 60 cm
Installation view

The doll represents Jagoda, Duje's girlfriend, who is dressed in typical outfit from Split. Jagoda proudly shows off her new silk scarf as she strolls along the Riva in Split. The scarf itself portrays different aspects of the tourist season in Split, as well as Duje’s properties. In this work, I question how concepts such as heteronormativity and hyper-masculinity influence urban planning as a practice. Duje, the influential investor, is emasculated as he is placed on a silk scarf and worn as a luxurious tourist souvenir.
