The shiny parts look familiar, but odd at the same time. The rearrangement of the fragile invertebrate pieces makes our thoughts to spin for a little while.

 
Name of graduation student: Eveliina Urhonen
Name of guiding teacher: Jenni Sokura

Nominated by LAB University of Applied Sciences


Eveliina Urhonen created a series of brooches that invites us to take a closer look. The shiny parts look familiar, but odd at the same time. The rearrangement of the fragile invertebrate pieces makes our thoughts to spin for a little while. What once was living and possibly daunting, is now still, easier to approach and to focus on the details. The overlooked creatures get a chance to spread the knowledge and to affect the assumptions in their new form.
/ Jenni Sokura, lecturer


Statement by the artist:
The thesis brings out the beauty and worth of invertebrates by removing the shape of the in vertebrate. When the often ill-thought invertebrate parts come together with jewellery, the viewer might think again their point of view on these creatures. The thesis also deals with the ethics of using material from living creatures. The production is a six-piece brooch series. They are made of different kind of invertebrates combined with copper. The copper brings it’s own beaty and strength to the fragile invertebrate pieces. All of the invertebrate parts are sourced ethically, either the artist has grown them themselves or they are gathered from nature already deceased, therefore knowing they are ethically sourced. Keeping things as ethical as possible working with living materials is important. The Invertebrate -series seeks to shift the viewers look to the beauty of invertebrates by bringing out the beauty of the creature without the familiar shape. The idea for the thesis comes from the artists own passion for invertebrates and changing the way people look at these often misunderstood creatures.
