On Friday 7 February at 6pm, Krista Laos will open her solo exhibition in the Vault of A-Gallery.
Laos has said that she feels like a child or a god, taking materials apart and rearranging the details to create her own worlds. With DREAMWALK, she is putting the emphasis on her materials of choice – silver, mother of pearl, precious stones and pearls.
“DREAMWALK has two origins. From one end, the splendour and spirituality of Seto brooches, from the other, the utterly irresistible materials such as mother of pearl, rock crystal quartz, silver and steel. Their unison is inviting. The moonlight, woman and the moon are tied for eternity – both carrying fluidity and mystery as their birthright. DREAMWALK is the feeling that moonlight can be pinned to the chest”.
Krista Laos will introduce her practice at a public talk that will take place on Saturday February 22 at 13 pm.
