Anda Klancic was introduced on Body Pixel by my fellow blogger Ivana in her review and the gallery from Balkan Fiber Art event almost three years ago. Anda’s appealing textile sculptures have a special place here and we will definitely continue to cover activities by one of the most recognized European contemporary textile artist and the winner of prestigious competitions around the globe.
For the very end of this gallery, we bring you at the bottom of this blog post complete catalog from the exhibition The Power of Thread readable via Issuu web service. Enjoy!

Japanese artist Yotsuya Simon dedicated almost his entire life to studies on human body. I don’t have to mention that Japanese surrealism, jazz music and seeing Hijikata Tatsumi’s Butoh performance have influenced Yotsuya Simon‘s aesthetics and body of work.
Bodies of his dolls are tangible and fragile, open and humorous, yet very strong in expressiveness. Probably the most intriguing sets of contemporary angels I have ever saw.

Karolina Pernar, an amazing artist whose work I’ve covered earlier today in some other situation and digital territory… and, of course, I couldn’t resist not to share her sculpture based jewelry here…
