AFRIGARDE

Condé Nast House & Garden - - ZEITGEIST -

Draw­ing on tra­di­tional Nde­bele sur­face de­sign and body adorn­ment, Maria Uys has cre­ated a range of wear­able art that blurs the lines be­tween sculp­ture and jew­ellery. Each piece is ex­e­cuted in felt and ac­tively strives to cre­ate a fu­tur­ist aes­thetic, ques­tion­ing notions of cul­tural bar­ri­ers and bi­ases that cer­tain tra­di­tional at­tire might still cre­ate.
