Animal: The other side of Evolution by Ana Rajcevic
Posted on August 4, 2012 by bertadp
The bodily mutations imagined here by London-based fashion artist Ana Rajcevic grabbed our attention almost instantly. Ana Rajcevic created her conceptual collection ‘Animal: The Other Side of Evolution’ at the London College of Fashion’s MA Fashion Artefact Program. Animal forms appear as extensions of the human body, suggesting “strength, power, and sensuality.”
The pieces she has created have a double life: on the one hand, are fashionable adornments, playing upon features of the human face, and, on the other hand, when seen alone, are covetable sculptures. Working in fiberglass, silicone rubber and resin, Rajcevic set out to create a collection of pieces which wouldn’t fall under the traditional mold of jewelry or accessories, and to develop a new type of artefact; precious objects which can be worn or exhibited.
