The theme of the article is the contemporary sculpture referring to clothes. The objects are costumes of performers, clothing installations, photographic or film documentation of volatile "packages" of the human body presented in the gallery. Artists dealing with this type of creativity, selected by the author of the text, were once marginalized, also because of their gender, colour of skin or sexual identity. In the era of postmodernism, they took up a position in the mainstream of art, which is defined by the status of the Other. The author, however, is looking for a different kind of otherness. Interpreting selected works she refers to known discourses (of power, body, etc.) as well as is looking for different, hidden meanings. The hidden Other can only be suggested. Their ethereal nature can be manifested, among others, through understatements, disturbance of order based on oppositions, etc. The author analyzes selected works by Rosemarie Trockel, Rebecca Horn, Charles LeDray, Helen Chadwick, Jana Sterbak, Dorothy Cross, Yinka Shonibare. The hidden Other escapes from being finally closed in the definition. A description and definition would undermine its essence.
