Bezalel 2011: Graduates Exhibition
Adam Gefen, Nature Inside
, 2011, Graduated 2011, Jewelry and Fashion
This collection raises questions regarding the masculine image and the implications stemming from it. The use of handmade knits and organic textures, alongside geometric structures based on rigid lines and surfaces create an ambivalent masculine image striving to shatter familiar stigmas and suggest new design alternatives. On the one hand, it is an exaggerated picture of the masculine image. On the other hand, it presents a transparent fragility that leaves the body exposed and unprotected. Rough urban scenery and wild nature were the primary sources of inspiration and provided the design principles for this collection.

 

Techniques : draping, free patternmaking, knitting, silk screen printing, weaving, spray painting & dipping.
