“…You step outside, and the city opens like a rare jungle flower. Place one trembling leg inside and let the pollen dust your thighs. In the city, you are suddenly a wild pony with hooves built for the night. So you start to run.”
*TANK magazine, 2014, Jane Flett

 

The today’s culture is fascinated by technical and digital. Its precise beauty however is connected with opposite: physical and instinctive. A race of the modern person through flows of information generates deficiency of rituals. We run almost with closed eyes speeding up the tempo.

One of archaic rituals – the identifying yourself with animals originated long before the appearance of civilizations, and the reason is always the same – not referring oneself to animals but drawing a difference from them by the way of decorating the body which ascribes to a person some certain force.

My work points not only to the quicken way of life but to a hidden human potential where jewellery  becomes a symbolical approach to celebrate being human.
