For a new exhibition at Tensta Konsthall, Behnaz Aram has designed an exclusive collection made by deconstructed pieces that were never picked up from the dry cleaner.


Today marks the opening of a new exhibition at Tensta Konsthall in Stockholm. ”Standard length of a miracle” is a retrospective of duo Goldin+Senneby’s artistry. As part of the exhibition, Behnaz Aram (costume designer and head of design at & Other Stories) has designed a collection inspired by a short novel by Jonas Hassen Kemiri, who is also written for the exhibition.

The novel portrays a man, Anders Reuterswärd, who struggles to find a way to escape his position at a dry-cleaner and dive into the art world. Identity and transformation thus became central for the collection, which consists of materials from clothes that have been left at different dry cleaners in Stockholm.

From the start, the intention was not to make a whole collection but a conceptual costume for the staff, based on main character Anders Reuterswärd. However, during the process it expanded to become a collection, which will be for sale exclusively at A Days March in Stockholm from 29 January. The clothes are deconstructed and customized for both men and women, and elements from the novel are present throughout the whole collection.
