Making the invisible visible
The infinite love for the forms and processes of nature has united Celina Saubidet and Marina Molinelli Wells in a third entity that transcends them and that is much more than the sum of the parts: Cabinet Óseo
. Both daughters of doctors, one artist and sculptor, the other an industrial designer, enhancing their visions they develop everything from small objects and jewellery to large-scale sculptures and installations.Reinos
is a sample of their latest research deployed in four spaces of the National Museum of Decorative Art
(MNAD) in Buenos Aires, Argentina. Spun by that gaze that abstracts, poeticises and transfigures forms like someone trying to decipher a language that speaks to us in common and reconnects us with a whole.
Nikole had the pleasure to be welcomed to Celina Saubidet and Marina Morinelli Wells vision with her handmade costumes. These costumes and headpieces, that seems to come out from a fantastic world, were based on two of Cabinet Oseo's jewellery lines, Electrolisys and Filigranas.
"I created a character called 'Flora' that represents electrolysis, the process of metallisation of objects from an electrochemical technique by which the object is covered with metal, generating a layer of five microns or more. To achieve this I experimented with an infinity of materials, merging them until achieving new textures that I later moulded in the form of plants and leaves, giving the sensation of being based on copper, but at the same time with movement. The second outfit is called "Fauno". In this one, my goal was to personify filigranas, taking silver as the protagonist. From the enlarged microscope view of a living organism, I generated a drawing that serves as a guide for creating a kind of lace made of alpaca, copper and bronze wires welded with tin."
