Selina Woulfe

 

 

 

I’m
 interested 
in the 
social, 
cultural,
 and
 religious 
rituals 
surrounding 
the 
body, 
and 
the
 objects 
used 
to 
conduct 
them. In 
the 
true 
sense 
of 
fetish,
 they 
are
 inanimate 
objects
 revered 
for 
their 
significance 
or 
spiritual 
power.
Within
 my
 practice 
I 
experiment 
with 
the
 haptic
 qualities
 of
 different
 materials 
and
 use
 the
 skin
 as 
a 
sensory 
material 
to
 be 
explored 
and 
tested. Artistically
 I 
strive 
to 
create
 jewellery
 objects 
that
 form 
a 
dialogue 
between 
the
 body 
and 
the 
mind
 in 
order
 to 
achieve
 a 
physical 
and
 psychological 
level 
of awareness 
for
 the
 wearer/viewer.
I often use my own skin and body to experience and test my jewellery; challenging my own identity and drawing inspiration from my mixed polynesian heritage and culture, with its many rituals.
I also believe that it’s perfectly fine to have a piece of jewellery that scratches, catches or slightly stabs. You just have to be more careful while wearing it – the same as you would with something precious or delicate. Instead you treat everything around the jewellery as precious or delicate.
