Body Within Structure

DESCRIPTION OF THE WORK

The bridal collection deals with the ratio between home (family), woman and spirit (essence), parallel to Arte Povera´s man-nature-culture relation. The modern woman and her ability to exist as both stable and free. The gowns are from tent figures (home) that lean against the body (women+spirit ) just like a tents supporting pillar.

INSPIRATION

Arte Povera was a group that included artists who had similar points of view and were brought together by their approach towards art. They maintained that man, nature and culture were interwoven elements that affected one another, and could empower and clarify each other.

MATERIALS USED

Silk organza, lace, metal nets and cotton lacing.
