Change and Decorations

“How can narrative Jewellery & Metalwork be used to express the changes in gender cognition?”

Zanzhang has made wearable and installation using gender-symbolic items to explore notions of gender cognition. A ring which can burn is burnt. Underwear buttons are used as decorations, cast into small sculptural ornaments. Here jewellery is not just a ring, brooch or necklace rather they are objects defined by their relation to people. “I use my work to bridge the relationship between human emotions and objects”.
