I kept thinking about her skirt. I wanted it long, large, bombastic, folkloric. How the hell can a rock be folkloric?

Those skirt from the paintings from Ignacio Zuloaga Y Zabaleta 1909, skirts that cover you from the cold, they protect you.

Arabel Lebrusan

Arabel Lebrusan is a visual artist working in sculpture and jewellery and based in the UK. Focusing on transforming materials into physical metaphors — such as toxic mercury from small scale gold mining into a child’s tinny hand — she seeks to amplify the voices of the people and the land falling through the cracks of the system. She has exhibited and created site-specific installations at The Higgins Bedford (2021); Brighton CCA (2021); Women’s Support Centre, Surrey (2021); Museum of St.Albans (2015); St.Paul’s Square, Bedford (2012); Art in Fuse, Rotterdam (2005); Lunâ Art Collective Gallery, Cebu (2004); Gesundbrunnen bunker, Berlin (2000). Her TEDx talk on ethical jewellery and her latest campaign raising funds for Global March against Child Labour are examples of her international campaign work. She was also awarded Designer of the Year (2017) by the National Association of Jewellers, UK and was the winner of Eastern Approaches (2014) at UH Galleries, Museum of St.Albans.
