Tracksuit Trendy is a piece of composition and performance art which intersects various political media threads into a commentary on the binary beauty standards and toxic culture surrounding whiteness, the misogyny erupting from reddit polluting the online community with ridiculous ‘scientific’ claims about the disappearance of the Y chromosome, and the appropriation and rebranding of the working class garment - the tracksuit - which the fashion industry has successfully turned into a luxury item.
