The collection BITTERSWEET is a fusion of PRISON and BARBIE. The
iron- skirt, the
iron headpieces as well as the voluminous tubes represent the cage. The combination of
black & pink symbolizes
the contrast of bitter and sweet in a dramatic and surrealistic way. The opposite of black
for me is not white-
it's pink ! The knitwear garment and the iron constructions are fully made by hands.
The translation of the artistic interpretation into a real life of a person is raising awareness to break free from mental constriction. There are so many prisons, so many invisible- because they only exist in people's mind.
