    Aurelie Dellasanta Chinese Purse
    This accessory is made with a recycled purse's clasp in white metal. I added a rope on it so it is possible to wear it as a handbag. I sewed on the Chinese banknotes decorative ribbons which remind the luxury Chinese ornaments. Size: W12 × H7 × L4 cm. My work is about money and its value in our occidental society. I’m asking myself about the future of a world where the economy, the consumption’ society and the profit never stop to increase to the detriment of the essential nature of human being. A trip to India and Asia made me more sensitive to our society the self-satisfaction, comfort, and tasteless luxury which enters everywhere in our daily way of life. I use coins and notes to create jewels, purses, cuffs, which denounce the pretentious, arrogant and frivolous character of the fineries and other fashionable accessories worn by the mass of conventional people.
