Touch or tactile perception is overshadowed by the visual culture in which we live, Lore's work particularly focuses on the tactility and physicality of animal hides in their most elementary forms.

Intro
Lore Langendries (1988), doctor in the Arts since 2015, is an artistic maker active in the field of contemporary jewellery and object design based in Hasselt, Belgium. Her work balances between the unique and the serial with a particular focus on the tactile and physical of artefacts, the behaviour of material in combination with digital technology and her own intuitive role as a maker. Materials are used as active agents in the design and making process, they are handled as subject and matter.

Statement

The world becoming more and more dominated by technology and the digital, virtual image, ensures an increasing separation from the emotion and physicality of artefacts. Due to the internet we are all visually and virtually connected, but not physically. Touch or tactile perception is overshadowed by the visual culture in which we live, but still, those visual imagery makes touch and feel the hungriest senses of postmodernity. 
Lore Langendries’ work balances between the unique and the serial with a particular focus on the tactile and physical of artefacts, the behaviour of natural animal material in combination with digital technology and her own intuitive role as a maker. Central to her work is the use of geometrical forms showing the essence and beauty of animal hides in their most elementary forms. The material is used as an active agent in the design and making process, handling the material as subject and matter.

Hide, the fragment
With the concept of Hide, the Fragment Lore is presenting a new phase in her work since 2018. Hide, the Fragment reveals or conceals, depending on how close it is to your skin. Does the fragment still evoke associations with the animal from which it originates? When the whole is missing, can the fragments be seen as worthy identities? Does the pattern or shape elicit new references? These questions influenced Lore’s work in which fragments focus on the particular skin, on the natural hair direction and specific details. This is similar to a photographic image in which a particular subject is defined, creating a new reality. By cutting and shaving a focus is created on hidden details. It doesn’t reveal what you can see vague already, it rather reveals new structures of matter. The intimate partnership between the maker and the material shapes a hair-fine imagery and intriguing visual language.

Tactility and intimity
The hairy pieces, worn on the body create different feelings. On the one hand, it is unattractive wearing a hairy object, on the other hand it is attractive and stroking becomes an automatic reaction. Touch is enhanced and complemented by vision, the experience of tactility is not merely about the act of touching but also the intimate feeling one can get. Vision separates us from the world whereas the other senses, such as touch, unite us with it.
