Nidi (Nests) is a project inspired by the idea of a safe place, these wearable sculptures like the natural nests, embrace the life and the body of the wearer.
Manual ability is central in Sissi’s work: she delicately intertwines and welds gold and silver threads with coloured stones to make a new skin that represents an extension between her work and her body in the space. In the artist’s practice, everything starts from a small element that grows and develops in different forms. This flow take shape from the soul of the artist and is articulated from the body with a potentially infinite form.
