When Tithi Kutchamuch learned that her dog died a month before she was able to return to her parents' home, she realized that she wished she could have taken her pet with her everywhere. From there, she developed the idea of a secret friend: jewellery that was part of a pet animal that stayed at home. The jewellery acts as the connection when you are out and completes the sculpture when you are safely home again. Parrot Companion Parrot is the largest piece in the collection and the closest to life size, in order that the connection be made stronger.
Artist: Tithi Kutchamuch
Companion Parrot will be part of a collection exhibited at Saatchi Gallery 14-17 May 2010 in London.
