Shoplifter’s Imaginary Entourage Sculptures

Icelandic artist Hrafnhildur Arnardottir (also known as Shoplifter) created a playful inanimate entourage.  Her series Imaginary Friends is composed of a number of various sculptures which seem to each vaguely resemble a person.  The Friends appear to be sparsely constructed and made of familiar materials.  It is intriguing for how well they imply human figures considering the little they use.  Imagining a unique personality for each piece isn’t difficult.  Arnardottir also seems to touching on the way identity is expressed in personal adornment and dress.

Really, much of Arnardottir’s work tip-toes between fashion and art.  In fact, her familiarity with style and design has garnered her collaborations with several magazines.  Arnardottir’s art, however, has teamed her up with some especially high-profile creatives such as legendary musician Bjork and super-artists Assum Vivid Astro Focus.
