Bewerbungstraining is a cathartic duo of scarves.
The necessity for every creative to represent oneself often brings questionments about one's own legitimacy and creativy. As they were struggling to etablish their practice, Elke & Lou stepped right into those problems, casting doubt on their work and ability to live from them. They decided to loosen up from this strict gruelling reflection in some way.
The degradations, pixelations and glitches, which appear in the scarves, echoe the uncertainty and doubts accompagning every attempt of an objective self-representation. The colored and black scarves mirror each other as positive and negative reflections; one saying the full potential, the other reducing it to its destructured struggling core.
