Savannah BredowArt & Research Breda
The world around my body feels like a reflection of anatomical structures. For example the nervous system is as sensitive as the roots of a tree and the spinal cord works as an information highway running between the brain and body.
With my work, I externalize the inside of the body in a fictional way. To visualize that idea, I create wearable art and sculptures.
My wearable objects are called ‘Exonerves’. I explore human anatomy to extend and morph a mental state into the physical state. I reference body parts, like fictitious distorted images of nerves, vertebrae, and organ tissue into my designs. The body is turned inside out and elements of a vulnerable inside are turned into both protective and defensive mechanisms on the outside. By wearing my pieces, the intention is to see sensitivity as a strength.
