Body of Work
Ippolita Rostagno may be known as a jewelry designer—famous for her simple, gold bangles that are big in Hollywood—but she is a sculptor at heart. For Fashion’s Night Out, the Florence-bred, New York-based artisan will debut seven commanding hand-blown glass and steel installations in an exhibit called “Reliquary.” The pieces, which are each shaped to resemble a body part with a video element positioned inside, took four years to create, and will be on view for two days, starting tonight at Highline Stages.
Two works from “Reliquary.” From left: “Torso”; “Spine and Bones.”
