Since the early 1960s, Stephen Willats has devoted himself to the dialogue between the artwork and the viewer.

His models from the series Multiple Clothing are specially made mix-and-match PVC garments. Each design is produced as an assemblage of clothing sections that contain either singe words, or a range of letters. These can be built up within the framework of each design, indicating the state of mind of the wearer.

This artist’s book contains diagrams, drawings and photographs of the work alongside comment and text written by Willats himself.
