I am so in love with the knotted works of Finish artist Nithikul Nimkulrat. Most of the press written about her is not in English so I cannot tell you much except... She makes incredibly beautiful, ethereal, sculptures of everyday objects and moments with the simple process of tying knots.
With that said she creates some of the most intricate and beautiful knots that I have ever seen.
I love how each sculpture is a monochromatic white, adding an aesthetic simplicity that strengthens the work....
and each object is delicate and see through- though also seeming strong and sturdy.
and I also adore her series of suspended clothing and coats.
these specific works speak so much to both the presence and absence of the body.
See more of her lovely work here.
