Nai, Rotterdam, The Netherlands
Aziz Bekkaoui has designed clothing for the employees of the Dutch Architecture Institute (NAi) to make them more recognizable to visitors. In the performance NAi Security Aziz Bekkaoui shows the clothing he created for the guards.
Aziz Bekkaoui views clothing style as a second skin that reflects the identity of the wearer. Clothing is ‘read’ by our surroundings. The NAi-garment lets the visitors see that the security guard who works at NAi, also has the role of host or hostess.
