— Broken Butterflies

Some delicate pieces by Anne Ten Donklaar.“Influenced by children’s book ‘the butterfly workshop’ by gioconda belli, where a boy dreams of one day creating a cross between a bird and a flower, Netherlands-based artist Anne Ten Donkelaar has taken this imaginative concept and created ‘broken butterflies’, a series of hybrid insects.the collection features damaged specimens which are repaired based on their existing condition through detailed pieces of textile, elements found in nature and mechanical gadgetry.


The original name of the ‘map butterfly’ is the atlas moth which currently lives in asia. Building on the theme of travel and location the artist used cartograms to repair its wings extending its life. the topography lines are rendered in the same color tone as the insect outlining a new form and identity for the fragmented animal.”
