Series of 15 Brooches for TRIPLE MATTER @ Gallery Mari Funaki, AU.
Roedeer hide or reindeer hide, saddle leather and magnets.
Hide, the Fragment reveals or conceals, depending on how close it is to your skin. Does the fragment still evoke associations with the animal from which it originates? When the whole is missing, can the fragments be seen as worthy identities? Does the pattern or shape elicits new references? These questions influenced Lore’s work in which fragments focus on the particular skin, on the natural hair direction and specific details. This is similar to a photographic image in which a particular subject is defined, creating a new reality. By cutting and shaving a focus is created on hidden details. It doesn’t reveal what you can see vague already, it rather reveals new structures of matter. The intimate partnership between the maker and the material shapes a hair-fine imagery and intriguing visual language.
Tactility and intimity
The hairy pieces, worn on the body create different feelings. On the one hand, it is unattractive wearing a hairy object, on the other hand it is attractive and stroking becomes an automatic reaction. Touch is enhanced and complemented by vision, the experience of tactility is not merely about the act of touching but also the intimate feeling one can get.
