Cedric Mizero is a multidisciplinary artist working across the fields of film, visual art, performance and fashion. He was born and raised in a small village called Gishoma in the Western Province of Rwanda. His work is rooted in the village, its people, natural surroundings and his memories of growing up. His ongoing project Fashion for All puts the men and women of Gishoma at the heart of his fashion collections, inviting people to reflect about the value of each individual and their right to access and enjoy the transformational power of fashion regardless of their age, size, social or economic status.
For his intervention in Walk-in Wardrobes Mizero brings his way of finding inspiration in emotional and sensory experiences with his surroundings and the beauty around the small instants of the day-to-day to the wardrobes of Arnhem. He invites the community to come together to relook at the contents of their wardrobes and to find beauty and wonder in their everyday clothes. By looking through different eyes and working through many hands Mizero encourages us to revalue our clothes, how we wear them and the emotions and memories they hold.
