‘Crossbearer’ is a collaboration between clothing and photography, trying to tell a common story about what we in our time consider spirituality and higher purpose, and how we think less about the collective, and instead focus on our own personal agendas.
‘Self-realization is the martyrdom of our time. Through our lack of ideals we worship constructed identities as contemporary icons. Tormented by an unattainable self-image, we constantly seek the spotlight, to be watched, admired, and mirrored. Self fulfilment is our aim, and we oscillate between two selves: The Super Hero, and the terrified squab. Divinity or worthlessness. We are all masters and geniuses in contempt of dependency and closeness. Our cross we still must bear.’
