Castle Luggage

Léna Gelsomino – Castle Luggage

Plexiglas, transparent vinyl, rusty chains
1.5m x 2m

Castle Luggage presents a jewellery assemblage crafted for imaginary castles. Just as I apply makeup or create props for my performances, my castles contain tales of wonder and horror which leads them to become the narrators of their own story. Tailor-made, these adornments create an interplay and a dialogue between myths and the subject who tells them. This long ornament slides over a transparent scenic installation, from which emerge the drawings of these castles and dreamlike islands, thus revealing this autonomous place of expression, which calls upon our own memory, experience and imagination.
