ODE TO JOY
Coláiste Nano Nagle, 20 Sexton St, Limerick, Co. Limerick
Inspired by the European Green Deal, ode to joy symbolises the values and principles of the EU and its efforts in fighting climate change. The silhouette creates a powerful aesthetic. 27 cable ties frame the head piece, each representing a country in the EU. A fanning pattern on the skirt, the detailed hand-crafted golden bodice and the blue flowers on the skirt ruffle and sleeves, all express the individualism of each country yet when brought together as one, the garment represents the unity and connection between each EU member state and their commitment to the environment.
Made from old bedsheets, mesh, old folders, an old rope, cable ties, cardboard folders and disposable shoes covers and tin foil balls.
