POWER


The Headpiece, made in 2008/2009, is the major piece of the collection. It is composed of a woven gold fabric and a furry part, which is made with a technique vaguely resembling that used for  tapestry. The piece consists of 5,123,000 single wires (160 km of wire in total). The Headpiece has required over 2,500 hours of labour. Wearing the Headpiece gives one the energy of an enormous overwhelming power.
