a Bird's View 

// RTW runway show at Royal Courts of Justice, London UK, June 2012

This collection investigates the point in which an abstract image becomes recognizable and takes form – that certain moment one perceives something and can identify it.

Elevating “nothing” into “something”.

 

Inspired by contemporary artists; the Chemigrams of Pierre Cordier, the huge canvases with endless colours of Gerhard Richter, the Kinetic Art of Jacob Agam, Juan Fontaive and nature.

 

I thought of birds as the ultimate philosophical creation. These fleeting creatures, hovering above and overlooking our world from a completely different point of view, have followed me ever since my childhood, when I used to notice the Hummingbird nesting in my family’s garden.

 

The temporality of these bird’s presence, the fact that they were just there and after a sudden are already gone, also had it’s impact on my designs for this collection. I created silhouettes which are referring to continuity & discontinuity of materials.
