Dance is total freedom. The form of expression that overwhelms all senses is also a praise for equality. Bodies combined together in rhythmic sequences - regardless of seemingly significant differences - they tell the story of fitting in and harmonious coexistence, acceptance and tolerance. This silent manifesto of the right to be yourself has encouraged Anna Orska to highlight the body in very artistic, jewellery projects. The inspiration drawn from rarely appreciated beauty of its very functional fragments found its outlet in hyper-realistic brass forms cast from nature, that formed the BODY collection.
The designer took a close look at the body without a curtain of clothes and focused on the shapes of its smallest parts. She was enchanted with an auricle of the ear catching the sounds of words and music, the shape of a nose, giving us so many subtle pleasures, by the shape of the lips cut-out, sensual and developing intimacy. In close-up, she traced the line of fate in the palm of a hand, leading her to a unique fingerprint. She accentuated the cleavage and chest by marking its center point. Nipples, which in the age of social media have grown to the rank of the most censored element of the body, in ORSKA collection are again visible.
The Body collection requires openness, just as in fact our body does, the beauty of which lies in diversity. Different colors of skin, hair and eyes; various textures and imperfections that we gain with age; shapes smaller and larger, more or less rounded. ORSKA looks at the body with due respect and tenderness, accepting it fully the way it is. And appreciates it, drawing extensively on the diversity of human beauty. The heterogeneity of this inspiration is emphasized by the accompanying photo session and the film by Wojtek Onak (OCR Creations), in which contemporary dancers Hayato Nishijima, Dominika Babiarz and Miguel Eugênio de Sousa Júnior took part.
The Body collection is another concept of ORSKA brand inspired by and faithfully drawing on nature: this time its human nature. It doesn't improve anything, it doesn't beautify anything. It focuses our attention on small furrows or protrusions and encourages you to tame them. Handmade jewelry makes our corporeal shell an ornament and supports acceptance for our physicality. The ideal body does not exist and should not be a purpose in itself. The physical shell of our body is just a cover for the emotions pulsating beneath it.
