Embarking on a journey of Unisex -Man & Woman- interaction of shells and textile batik of 1990 in purple and black. These were bought in one of the oldest Jakarta shopping markets (around since 1820) called “Pasar Baru” by my mother who has always nurtured the passion for textiles in general and somehow managed to pass it on to me as a true obsession.
These specific unique pieces have accompanied me throughout many voyages, from Indonesia to Usa, to Europe and finally Italy where I decided to give them a new life again in this shooting on Matha and Aldo @claudiapourtoujours, a splendid location in the heart of Torino where this ancient building of Corbetta Bellini of Lessolo as well as natural light merge into one making their way to you by giving you that sense of warm embrace I constantly feel connected too.
The idea of merging body and design as well as gender : specifically for these MAO (Museo di Arte Orientale in Turin) pieces and a special parure of Collier + Earrings for the Milano Jewelry Week had been on my mind since Nov 2020 when I was called by the CNA of Turin and was given news of having been selected to showcase my Jewelry pieces at the museum in relation to the project ToAsean where the Chamber of Commerce, IED and Italia Myanmar alongside CNA Torino were involved.
I am proud to be have been selected for this year’s exhibition starting June 3 2021!
All the pieces come with a certificate by ARCHIVIO MICHELANGELO.
