Jewelry and Metalsmithing
What is in the overlap between jewelry and clothing? Does the combination of jewelry and apparel create a new, significant,way of seeing art?
Hybrid Garment is a series of work that explores the overlap between fashion and Jewelry. As an artist and designer, my background and training prepared me to dissect and rebuild the relationship between and potential of jewelry and garments. The potential of hybridity serves as a methodology to combine and conflate the two disciplines.The essence of this work carries the idea of inclusivity, it encourages people at all levels to wear them. In addition, anyone wearing it can display individualism in public places. Hybrid Garment simplifies the complex categories of fashion and jewelry. It embodies the connection between art and life.Hybrid Garment breaks the rules that artworks are usually displayed in galleries or museum. It embraces people to access art on the street, bus station, in the supermarket, etc.
