Volt Café scoped Damselfrau aka Norwegian artist Magnhild Kennedy back in 2012. A talented and inquisitive autodidact, she has created pieces for super stylist Alister Mackie, incorporating Louis Vuitton buttons.
These intricate and exquisite masks have also caught the expert eye of renowned trend forecaster Li Edelkoort, leading to a Damselfrau mask currently being part of Fetishism, the exhibition Edelkoort has curated at TRAPHOLT Museum of Modern Art, Design and Architecture in Denmark. That show is on till January 2016. However, if you weren’t planning a trip to icy Scandinavia, you can catch her work in London at an upcoming solo exhibition. Heavily recommended.
