Wedding Dress 2019
‘Wedding Dress’ is a functional sculpture intended to trigger an energy transformation. The dress is a “portal” that acquires a symbolic meaning depending on who wears it. The piece reflects on the way mass media and the collective consciousness influences human relations and behavior within the consumer world. ‘Wedding Dress’ is a critique of superficiality, glamour, and luxury design products that represent core values of the market and often condition women to follow traditional patterns of idealisation established by patriarchal societies.
The work refers in texture and color, to a traditional wedding cake , but created with plaster filling applied on wood, by means of a pastry bag, accentuating its playful and ceremonial character.
