UK, London, Royal College of Art, 2019
Working with the resurgence of magic in the witching hours of the 21st century, I investigate my reality, forging the unreal from fragments of the real.
After winning the RCA’s Onno Boekhoudt Travel Award I took part in a shamanic training in Bali. My collection delves into my immersive trance experiences by embracing the animistic vision. I aim to bring back magical thinking as a strategy to access an altered state of consciousness and enter an alternative reality. Today, the distinction between fiction and reality is outdated: we live in a porous world where the fine line is disappearing (again). I am interested in this liminality ‘in between’ materials, spaces, people… Using jewellery and objects as shamanic language, my pieces are amulets, empowering the wearer through their compelling symbolic and material qualities. They transform and encourage a contemplative and spiritual approach to our environment. They are an invitation to perceive the re-enchantment of our world, a material exploration of a metaphysical dimension.
