Envisaged as the architecture of living forms, animal bones are a starting point for the Belgian creative duo, willing to return to the essence of life.
Bones are, by definition, a fundamental part of our being, as they provide the necessary structure for organs. They are, in fact, the truth within, the ultimate foundation one goes back to in order to reconnect with one’s nature.
A visible demonstration of what lies within, Espèces reveals the intricacy and delicate aspects of bones, without removing any of their mystery. Turning them into desirable and aesthetically pleasing objects, bones become unique artifacts, which challenge key notions of time and mortality
The relationship between jewellery and individual is an intense one, expressed in the direct contact between silver and skin.
Why was i drawn and fascinated by ESPECES.ESPECES? because i LOVE big jewellery that looks fragile but isnt.
At first i though "really nice but im sure the elements are tiny and break when they fall down and everything is so fragile."
but this pic from their exhibition during paris fashionweek at the TRANOI proved me wrong and makes me want to have ALL of the pieces!!
