About this Exhibitor / Bio: 

Vilma Mare is inspired by Iron Age Baltic artifacts in which she recognizes an integral aesthetic system, a script of symbols that are cosmologic and semantic manifestations of harmony, healing, earthly powers. She learns (by studying ethnology) that beauty was once created to protect. This great concept needs a come back! Vilma takes a simple form to make a wrap dress and decorates it with a hand stitched symbol w/ specific good meaning. This dress/ vestment may become an art piece when hung on a window or a wall.
