"Age Calculation, Dior"
Edition of 5 + 1 AP Silkscreen print
‘Age Calculations’ is an ongoing series of simple subtraction equations that shows the process of working out somebody’s age at a pinnacle moment in their career. It works by subtracting the year of an event by their birth year. This particular series focuses on the lives of influential artists and other creatives that struggled at a certain point in their career or were forced to compromise their work due to the lack of financial means or due to the necessity to take up a side job.
