Designer Magnhild Kennedy creates absolutely gorgeous, intricate masks that each carry an elaborate sense of emotion, history and drama. Every mask is completely handcrafted with unique materials that offer Kennedy a narrative while she’s making them.
I work with masks as autonomous works of art as well as action-objects. For me the mask is a place where different elements come together as situation. The work is about this place-situation, more so than the mask as a theme or category of form. The mask is a place. …I am led by the phantasms appearing in the process of the making and the materials themselves. These guide my decisions and inform the objects I make.
Masks, prints, and jewelry are available through Kennedy’s online shop.
