This is Poppedijn, a collaboration between me and Frederieke Westerveld from Freakstyle BJD. Poppedijn is a 32 cm doll and a genderless creature, made out of resin and strung with elastic. The outfits are all designed and hand made and embroidered by me. The concept behind this Poppedijn is that her dress represents a world she created of her own, with a cycle of life and death. Poppedijn lies in the middle of that world, observing and neutral.
This white Poppedijn has a hand knitted lace outfit. Her concept was the beginning of spring, the first, shy green flowers bursting through the still frozen ground.
Poppedijn as a concept is a genderless doll, with this doll we wanted to explore their androgyny, neither male, nor female, Poppedijn's name literally means 'doll that belongs to you' and so they morph into whatever we or their owner needs them to be. Poppedijn is to me, a gender utopia.
All three Poppedijns together. They are all hand cast in resin by Frederieke, photography by me. They are actually for sale, so if you are interested, please contact me.
