Bonds in thought
What if..?
What if I experienced war?
Would it be written on my face? – From the freedom of a mask to the personal touch of a caricature to the generality of a symbol. Those are the main aspects of my jewellery. The hollow bodies made of steel always develop from sketches, which are based on self-portraits. This way, conventionalised and three-dimensional images come into existence. I integrated parts of synthetic war toys into these brooches in order to start an argument in thought concerning these questions.
