Haunted By 36 Women
The Japanese artist Hokusai immortalized the most enchanting landscape he knew in a group of woodprints: '36 views of Mount Fuji'. These images inspired Ted Noten to develop 36 jewels for just as many types of women. Noten also made images: each woman was portrayed in a three dimensional collage. The shoes, car tyres and other ‘objects trouvés’ he used, seem a far cry from regular jewellery.
The display was designed in the shape of a capital T. The head of the T looks like a "dressoir" including a mirror and a stool. It also hided secret treasures in several drawers.
