Tactile Treatment

14th October 2014

Showing as part of the Moving on collective, a group of like minded jewellery designers showing in the Vaults in Waterloo till the 18th October bring together a new view on jewellery. Their mission is to open up the debate around the accessibility and knowledge of contemporary jewellery and objects.

Exploring our relationship with our jewellery and those people we interact with on a daily basis, Izzy Parker challenges our notions around our personal space and interactions with strangers with her cape from her 'Intimacy Series' of wearable pieces.

Made from 11,570 steel and copper needles which are usually used for acupuncture, she has hand woven them into a fabric that drapes over the shoulders.

Bringing the piece to life Izzy has collaborated with Shaun Spark to create a film that explores the interaction between the wearer and a companion. Posing questions about how we engage with our environment and the people around us the piece redefines our personal boundaries on meeting someone for the first time and how trust and collaboration come into play.
