ANTIDORCAS LL 1601
1 Springbok skin - 54 Fragment - 45 Pieces
Model: Moana Andreani
‘ANTIDORCAS LL 1601’, a jewellery collection made out of a black springbok hide, developed for Ra Gallery by Lore Langendries. One single springbok-skin was cut into 54 fragments. Each fragment, usually cut into a round shape, focuses on the uniqueness of the skin, on the specific details of the hair and the way it grows, comparable to highlighting a certain subject in a photographic image, and in doing so creating a new reality. Each brooch, pin and necklace is made with attention to the tactile quality of the artefact. With maximum focus on the aesthetic characteristics of the skin and minimal loss of material, the 54 fragments were made into 45 pieces of jewellery.
