Celio Braga

White Shirts 2003 (detail view of the installation).
An installation of 28 shirts donated by gay male friends. The shirts are folded, hand sewn and embroidered until they become compact sculptures/objects.

Rubros : Untitled. 2002-3 Hand-made felt, silk, cotton and red glass beads.
A series of 14 objects inspired by blood, open flesh and organs of the body.


Celio Braga is a fascinating artist - I first discovered his work in the Filz book mentioned below. His website is full of beautiful photographs of his work.

Hello Mandy,
Thanks for your nice comment on my blog. It is all rather fun isn't it? Your blog is interesting too - I like the Celio Braga shirt piece very much.
I was looking for a William Jefferies site yesterday to link to but couldn't find anything..
All the best,
Meabh
