Colibri

Colibri is a transparent plastic collection, light and aerial, with forms oscillating between botanical and underwater worlds. Made from recycled plastic bottle, this collection draws attention to the need to reduce and recycle our plastic waste… look here for the effect on the Ocean, also all around Jamaica.

Jamaica Biennial 2014 : Love is not enough 2#

LOVE IS NOT ENOUGH collaborative performance
NATIONAL GALLERY - JAMAICA BIENNIAL 2014
Su. 14th Dec 2014 - during official opening, around 2pm

The idea ? Nature takes years to grow trees, build fertile soil, develop reefs, etc … humans only need minutes to destroy all of this. And there is no « Undo » button when it comes to the environment.
The process ? The Girl and the Magpie proposed the idea above, along with some wearable sculptures made from natural material native to Jamaica, to Hans De Man and a group of performers led by Neila Ebanks. They developed their personal interpretion, using respectively music (sounds issued from nature embedded in an organic electronic soundscape) and body language (an intense choreography expressing nature’s threatened equilibrium).
The result ? A collective translation of the idea of the necessity of the protection of nature’s beauty and fragility. The performance invites the audience to reflect on the fragility of Jamaica’s ecological balance and possible actions for its preservation. Love is not enough, actions are needed.
Second phase of this project, after the first at Redbones during the KOTE Festival (remember? here)

New collection: a day | Nouvelle collection: un jour

|F| Metal ajouré de formes empruntées à la nature et stylisées: depuis la robe du zèbre en passant par celle de la girafe, par les dents du croco et les griffes du tigres, les herbes folles et les pissenlits, jusqu’à la lune (et retour)…  Et quelques géométrisations tirées de là.

|EN| This new metal collection consists of openwork pieces, with stylized patterns coming from the animal and vegetal world: from zebra stripes and giraffe skin to crocodile teeth and tiger scratches, from wild grass to dandelions. During the creation process some patterns become more geometrical, up to a point where their origins get lost.

LOVE IS NOT ENOUGH – jewellery dancing performance

  • in the frame of KINGSTON ON THE EDGE (Urban Art Festival)
  • PERFORMANCE : “Love is not enough”
  • RedBones Cafe (1 Argyle Rd Kgn 10) June 20 2014 – Opening Night from 8.00pm
 “Love is not enough”
A collaborative dance performance putting nature’s fragility into the spotlight, expressing the necessity to treat nature with respect and to take care of her … Love for Jamaica’s beauty is not enough: actions are needed. Nature takes years to grow trees, build fertile soil, develop reefs, etc … humans only need minutes to destroy all this. And there is no « Undo » when it comes to the environment.
The Girl and the Magpie proposed this vision to Hans De Man and Neila Ebanks. Both of them developed a personal interpretation, Hans using sound, and Neila using dance as medium and wearing a necklace specially made for the performance. Dancers Kayon Wray, Paul Newman, Kim-Lee Campbell, and Tristan Rodney join the performance, wearing necklaces from the « Fragile Jamaica » collection. The performance invites the audience to reflect on the beauty of Jamaica’s nature, on the fragility of Jamaica’s ecological balance, and on possible ways to transform thought into action. On all levels actions are needed to encourage nature’s preservation: from daily gestures, over community projects, to political decisions.
