This is from the Běla Kolářová (1923–2010) retrospective at Raven Row.

There are collages and assemblages of paperclips made from paperclips, a razor blade made form hunders of razor blades and works that look like digital circuitry which on closer inspection reveal themselves to be made out of buttons, snap fastners, hairgrips, pins, makeup, bottletops and hair.

‘Běla Kolářová pioneered an art based on intimate objects often associated with domesticity and the feminine.’
