Necklace New Spring Old Gods #10 [Limited Edition] - NPINS10_21 Shades of gold necklace, 3D ends

These first necklaces in the ‘New spring, Old gods’ series (Winter 2020) continue Inari's investigation of bringing urban/industrial and organic/natural elements together, and as such also tie in with the ‘Brunswick’ work in the ‘Made/Worn’ exhibition.

Designed from mass produced, standardised plastic components into kinetic, blooming patterns, the pieces are light and playful, nodding to our urban surroundings. At the same time, the forms are evocative of ancient, sensual memories of seasonal rituals.

Inari says of her work: "I strongly sensed my Finnish roots while fabricating the necklaces, remembering the scent of bare, dark earth revealed by the melting snow; the patterns of sunlit tree branches in early March; the echoes of our Finnish pre-Christian forest spring rites with ornaments depicting death, rebirth and the Sun; the delicate details of plants and flowers that emerge after winter".

When worn, the pieces subtly move with the wearer. Each wearer can interpret them differently – spring will arrive, wherever you are...

These pieces were made to accompany work in the exhibition Made/Worn

Dimensions: Approx. 70cm length

Materials: Industrial plastic components.
