The story of 'Panam Panamá'
“We should stop thinking that we can get everything from everywhere and start to harvest the possibilities surrounding us.”
One year ago, Lea started PANAM PANAMÁ, a collaboration with different communities of Panamanian craftspeople. For Dutch Invertuals, she presents a ‘follow-up’ to this project constructed from materials she sourced in Paris, where she works from. The result in a wall lamp, consisting out of a recycled fan interwoven with leather pieces. Her work urges us to better consider our immediate environment by collecting materials within reach to create new objects.
