Mourning Objects / Anna Schwamborn
Wearable body pieces including human material.
The collection of objects contains post-mortem memorial pieces which include aspects of a deceased corpse, namely hair and cremated ashes. Human remains act as an important medium of remembering a passed away loved one and are some of the longest lasting and most individual natural materials.
Besides pure hair being used, cremated human ashes are mixed with black bone china, the world´s highest class porcelain. The objects are worn close to the body of the mourner symbolizing a lasting physical connection between two individuals even after death. Furthermore this collection reminds the wearer on the fragillty and appreciation of life and most importantly, acting as a keepsake.
