Mimicking the window displays in neighbouring boutiques, Brisbane artist Jemima Wyman’s TCB window installation More Jungle than Paradise draws on the subcultural style of street gangs and liberation armies. She displays her novel uniforms—balaclavas with fake eyes and plaid flannel shirts embroidered with face-mask logos—against a wallpaper mural densely patterned with images of the garments. Playing on the idea of urban camouflage, her garments suggest a means to mask individual identity while simultaneously asserting a group one.
