Damselfrau Creates Masks

Damselfrau Creates Masks

Damselfrau is Maghild Kennedy, an artist from Norway. To us, at Mimi Berlin, she is most known for the masks she creates. The masks are mostly created with found materials and sewn by Damselfrau’s hands. If you need to label this work you could say it’s textile art.  Her work was on exhibit at Moba 13 in Arnheim and at various venues in Londen, where Damselfrau works and lives. In her exhibitions the masks are often shown by itself, they become faces that way.
