Thursday, February 28, 2008 Leonor Hipólito: Camouflage necklaces
Klimt02 | Gallery proudly presents the new series of work from the Portuguese artist Leonor Hipólito.
The series show 4 necklaces that unfold out of a fragment of furniture. I use the furniture pieces as a metaphor for surrounding. Camouflage is about appropriating.
A projection of our closest and intimate universe: house, into what is most intime to us: jewels. Contrary to an expansion of ourselves to the surrounding space it is a condensation and incorporation of that space onto us.
