Articles of laundry appear in many of Iris Häussler’s works, in particular laundry which would come in direct contact to a person’s skin, such as bed linen, towels, sleepwear and underclothing. Where the bed linen and towels played a certain role in her early hotel works (1995) and in “Xenotope” (the inversion of a hotel work where guests could spend the night at different art-institutions sleeping in the exhibition rooms), underclothing is a central point in another body of work: Haussler’s works with wax.
