‘Holygangs’ is made of numerous football scarves collected from around the world over the past 10 years. Stemming from the word ‘hooligan’, ‘Holygangs’ is an exploration of the secular religion that exists in football-fan culture. Similar to religion, the culture is holy for those within, and somewhat of a mystery to those outside. While the scarves are hung individually on the wall, their individuality disappears in the massive crowd of colors, symbols and logos: when putting on a scarf, their identity is automatically disguised into the semi-sacred culture of football.
