26th Legnica International Jewellery Competition IDENTITY

 

Eunmi Chun

 

My work is driven by my interest in the similarities between plant animal forms, which materializes not only on the level of content but also in the choice of the material itself. The translucent intestinal pergament is molded into animals that are morphing into plants. The uncanny beauty is challenging and stirring up thoughts about the fragility of life, our closeness to death and the fact that life carries on: Incessantly and forever changing. 

 

 

It always interests me that we human have ambivalent feelings or characters at the same time and I want to express this through my work. For me, animals stands for offensiveness, wildness and activeness, whereas plants represents passiveness. To maximize this double-sided character, I try to select the particular animals that obviously show aggressive nature.
