Sander Reijgers....

Hood Design...

Sander Exhibition...

Sander Reijgers’ view of wearable art is extreme because his source of creativity stems from blow-up dolls. Yep, you know, that kind. He customizes ordinary tracksuits and hoodies by embellishing them with parts of the dolls. Heads, faces, breasts and so on. If you look carefully at the photos, he spares no parts of the doll’s anatomy.

The designer says, “These dolls are so ugly and vulgar that turning them into something beautiful has become a challenge for me. The doll is a means to convey something else.”

sander reijgers is a dutch artist based in utrecht who create assemblage sculptures using pieces from
plastic blow up dolls. in his latest work reijgers has created a series of objects made by cutting and
sewing together pieces from the sex dolls, including soccer balls, gloves and pieces of clothing.
the works also comes with explicit titles that point out where the materials originated; ‘sexball’ and
‘titball’ are among these titles.
