Soul Mates by Ildikó Dánfalvi

Necklace  /  Landscape
The Fise Award at Art Jewelry Night Budapest 2019.

My work is my biography. In my creation, my memories, my origins, my roots, traditions, places that are emotionally connected to me, have a big impact on me, everything that happens around me. Traditions inspire. I was born as one of the twins. This fact has deeply influenced and shaped my life. I am interested in how this deep bond between two identical people, siamese and identical twins, effects and shapes their physical and emotional condition. What does it mean in their search and longing for a soul-mate where two bodies or two souls grew together. Does One body have two souls or two bodies have one soul? The work presented is reminiscent of human organs that exist and function as a dependant pair. They appear symmetrical but are in fact different. My jewellery is a symbiosis between body and emotion-material and texture, the physical and the meta-physical that aims to create an ever-flowing exchange and tension between one and the other. I understand my jewellery as the symbolic embodiment of an inner condition.​
