With an artistic focus of anatomical study in relations to environmental elements, Sissi brings forth new ways to interpret wearable art, as the pieces transform into a second skin of light and gold for the wearer.
For her wearable art pieces, Sissi interlaces the symbolism of the bird’s nest with the anatomy of the human body. The artist’s creations are hand-made and embellished, yet delicate like her sculptures. Carefully interwoven and welded with gold and silver threads, decorated with precious gemstones, Sissi’s contemplative process re-imagines a sculptural piece of art to work in tandem with the single wearer.
It was pivotal to Sissi to be personally involved with the production of her wearable art pieces. Nests draws its symbolism from natural nests which provide a safe place. Nests can be displayed as a sculpture when taken off, and becomes a sculptural work of wearable art that unites with the individual when worn.
