The Finnish artist Anni Rapinoja will soon be exhibiting her exquisite 'Wardrobe of Nature' series at Arte Sella in Val di Sella (comune di Borgo Valsugana, provincia di Trento). The exhibit opens on June 30th and remains on view through September 30th, 2007.
Rapinoja fashions eco-sculptural garments and accessories out of plant parts, leaves, grasses, and flora species native to her homeland. Her "fur" coat tailored out of common reeds put a whole new spin on high style activism and luxury. For more information on Rapinoja's environmental projects and sculptural work, visit her website.
