Wearable Sculpture, from ANIMAL: The Other Side of Evolution series
Rajcevic explores the uneasy border between humans and other creatures in her ANIMAL series (2012). This dramatic headpiece resembles a horn in reverse or a long, rigid beard. Constructed from metal, polymers, and leather, these alarming headpieces challenge conventions of fashion and personal adornment.
