Damsefrau -Sculptural Masks

I am a huge fan of the Norwegian London-based artist Magnhild Kennedy since a while now. She creates stunning sculptural masks under the name of “Damselfrau“, and her beautiful creations are often visible on music videos and live performance installations.

There is a sort of mystical, mysterious and ritualistic vibe around her creations. Her process of making these pieces is also fascinating, this is what she says about it:

“I am led by the phantasms appearing in the process of the making and the materials themselves. These guide my decisions and inform the objects I make”.

You can purchase some of her creations here and find her on Instagram here.

Ýrúrarí – Sustainable Art

Processed with VSCO with f2 preset

The Icelandic textile artist Ýr Jóhannsdóttir (better known as Ýrúrarí), gives a second chance and life to “forgotten sweaters” in the most creative way.

She creates colourful wearable art, soft sculptures with a story to tell. Her research is also a statement against consumption and the will to educate through art in reusing and recycling old stuff.

This is how she describes her creative research:

Her work is mostly knitted, where fragments of humor, body movements and the everyday meets in wool based, often wearable, objects. For the past years the importance of sustainability has had an impact to Ýrúrarí’s work.

In her latest projects “Sweater sauce”, “I would not do something like that” and Sleik-zine Ýrúrarí raises questions on our absurd consumption habits of textiles and tries out new ways of making unwanted clothes last longer as a one of a kind art- and design pieces.
