Atelier van Lieshout
Ear Hangers, 2009
Atelier Van Lieshout’s work is characterised by deliberate contradictions between form and function. Reluctant to being conventional and limited, AVL always finds a creative and aesthetic solution. The jewellery pieces in collaboration with Elisabetta Cipriani flavour AVL’s entire unique brand of humour and irony. Ear Hangers, a pair of earrings representing five hanging men connected to each other, have a dual function – to be worn and to be admired while standing.
