Butterfly wings

Ania Guillaume Butterfly wings, 2018 Titanium necklace 29.5 (H) x 17 (W) x 4 (D) cm Unique Ref. N16     Butterfly Wings is an exemplary series of Guillaume’s examination of elements of the natural environment, translated into wearable art. In sculpture as much as in wearable art, there is a strong perception of the spiritual natural universe. Flowers or animals are designed within the shape of the jewel and, once worn, they create an intricate dialogue between the wearer and nature. Known for their fragility, the delicate attributes of butterfly wings are juxtaposed in its materiality. Casted from delicate carvings into thin wax, the titanium wearable pieces of earrings and necklaces still play with our perception to materiality, as the incredibly lightweight jewellery pieces gleam in their chromatic spectrums. Feminine and beautiful, these reflections of elements of nature become an elegant statement piece to our everyday fashion.

Ginkgo

Ania Guillaume Ginkgo, 2018 Gold plated silver necklace 27 (H) x 14 x 4 cm Unique Ref. N9 Nature is Guillaume’s main inspiration: the subtle colours, the ingenious shapes, the amazing technical solutions.  Guillaume translates this inspiration, at the micro and macro levels, in her paintings and sculptures. Gingko is Guillaume’s one of a kind miniature wearable sculptures visually derived from the leaves of the ancient Japanese tree. The gingko leaf was purposely chosen by the artist not only for its singular beauty, but mainly for the its meaningful symbolism of longevity and wellbeing.When the atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima in 1945, six Gingko trees were among the few living things to survive within a short radius of the blast site—and they’re still standing today. Thus, the Japanese regard the gingko as “the bearer of hope.” It is also known as “the survivor” and “the living fossil.” Guillaume first approached wearable art in 2011 using  gilded bronze, until the artist started moving onto gold plated silver and titanium, which proves to be much lighter, durable and with titanium more colourful. Each of Guillaume’s wearable sculptures are hand sculpted, sometimes leaving the artist’s finger prints on the surface of the work.

The Word (Love) Made Flesh

  Kendell Geers The Word (Love) Made Flesh, 2019 Silver and enamel pendant 7 x 7.4cm Edition of 20 Signed and numbered The Word (Love) Made Flesh collection consists of a pendant and cufflinks featuring an intricate figurine-like design derived from the ‘Hwe Mu Dua’ (‘measuring stick’) symbol – the West African Andrinka symbol of excellence and perfection. The pendant beautifully displays different brightly coloured patterns on each side, whereas the cufflinks reveal positive and negative black and  images. These spiritually charged wearable sculptures cannot, however, be categorised as either European or African, but are rather representative of an interplay between cultures, archetypal signs, and sacred symbols. In the true spirit of Kendell Geers, the archetypal trickster, the ancient African symbols featured in The Word (Love) Made Flesh have been refashioned in an Afropunk style and spell out the word ‘LOVE.’ The Word (Love) Made Flesh thus epitomises the artist’s tendency to subvert ancient iconography by embracing both traditional and contemporary African aesthetics. As the title suggests, The Word (Love) Made Flesh invites the wearer to search for the hidden word within the figure. Words that reoccur throughout the artist’s works include ‘LOVE,’ ‘HATE,’ ‘FAITH,’ ‘FUCK,’ and ‘FREE,’ among others. The pendant and cufflinks can […]
