Object installation


For my project I wanted to preserve the quality of the fur but alter it in a way that it becomes something new. I was fascinated by illustrations you can find in crop circles, this inspired me to shave the fur.

Next to the inspiration of the crop circles I got inspired by talisman objects. Objects that have a spiritual value, they can give luck or protect you from something.

After doing research into different talisman objects
I got the most fascinated by the Komainu guardian statues sometimes referred to as lion dogs, these guardian statues can be found guarding the entrance shrines as well as temples or even secular sites where they guard and ward of evil spirits.

The pieces I created are inspired by this idea “the protectors of the space”. They guard and watch over the space they are in, and protect it from evil spirits.
