"A dress is excavated, a dress is photographed, same dress is described. Real clothing, image-clothing, written clothing. These three garments according to Barthes un/fold when Marina Cruz transforms almost 100 dresses into image and into words, as told by their wearers, written in the artist's hand, framed and laminated; the same 100 dresses — encased, unfolded and refolded — are transformed by the beholders' touch, sight, smell." - excerpt from essay by Flaudette May V.
