In I’m in the wrong place to be real fitting room, visitors can try on and keep a pair of the pajamas from the psychiatric hospital hosting the exhibition. Patients are required to wear these pajamas, as they make it difficult for a person to leave the premises unnoticed. Something typically seen as childlike and playful, here the pajamas act as a signifier of abnormal status in society and possible madness.
