About the Edition
Close up details of feather body sculptures: goose feathers, dyed by hand.
Anna Lewis is a jewellery artist that works with feathers. Birds in direct contrast are symbols of freedom, of flight and of liberation. The work explores the contrasting elements of both female freedom and restriction.
The translation of ‘Elle Se Montre’ is literally ‘to show itself’. It is tied to the idea of the monstrous, in a state of becoming; or a state of emotion, the forms are a mutation of an alternative body and animal. These creatures are metamorphosing; they are alive and dead, artificial and real, familiar and strange. The monster shows itself as something that is not yet shown, that is not yet known.
