Throughout time people have adorned their bodies with words or symbols that represent them and their status, whether these were as permanent as a tattoo, or as transient as a fashionable garment. Sometimes chosen, sometimes imposed, this practice communicates the status or state of the owner as interpreted by the viewer.
The Zeena metal collection focuses on this particular relationship by instigating a story that will, eventually
and inevitably, lead to a conversation. By placing words charged with meaning and symbolism in precise locations
of the body, the artist provides a platform for people to interact with each other or to start rumors, for that matter.
