TROPHY HEADS & WIRE-WORK

WIRE-WORK

Through her extensive work with a select few skilled artisans, Magda sets out to transcend the stigma surrounding wirework as a mere street craft cliché. She has worked with a multitude of various wires in her experimentation. Although a wide range of works were created, telephone wire trophy heads became her main focus. These works spoke of consumption-as well as renewal- of plastic in a technologically driven world. The buck heads also juxtapose nature (using sprawling branches or succulents for horns) with the industrial telephone wire.
