Why Do You Wear Perfume?

…that’s the question I want you to answer!

Perfume As Practice, my research-led residency at Bank Street Arts, is really beginning to take shape. I find myself in between crowd-funding reward fulfilment and waiting for materials to arrive. This has provided me with a period of reflection, of clarifying and internalising my ideas. And one thing that has struck me is the fact that I ought to ask people why they wear perfume: After all, my project is about exploring the parallels between why people make art and why people wear perfume, and being able to investigate where art and perfume intersect, using research and evidence, will give the project extra weight and sincerity.

So, I am looking for people to answer the question ‘why do you wear perfume/cologne?’ I will then compile your responses into a set of paintings, which will be exhibited alongside my perfume portraits at Bank Street Arts early next year. So, if you could answer my question, that’d be great! 🙂
