This set of mugs by Annemie Odendaal, forms part of her “Postcards from Paris”-series:
“I have always loved the intricate art of folding origami, especially rabbits. The folding process forces me to be still, focus intensely and be completely in the moment. I find it both soothing and therapeutic. Once I arrived in Paris, I folded a new origami rabbit, and aptly called her Lapine (French for Rabbit). I then placed her in various Parisian settings, forcing myself to observe things from a different point of view, investigating my surroundings from a new perspective, exploring new concepts to develop into artworks later on. This series is therefore a very intimate look into my process, as I started to doodle with ink in my tiny sketchbook to put down preliminary ideas on paper. This is where new ideas start.
Seeing the world through these glasses (a bit like Alice through the looking glass), I have discovered so much more than I could ever anticipate, evoking a deeper connection and process of honest interrogation of my surroundings, society, and myself. I was struck once again by the beauty, complexity and
secrets of Paris, much as is reflective of our own lives.”
