LEAP Award

2022 LEAP Winner:
Danielle Attoe – Jewelry

2022 LEAP Winner Danielle Attoe is a metalsmith and jeweler who currently resides in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Her In the Flesh jewelry series focuses on the representation of the fat body in the gallery and the art world. While each of these pieces can be seen as a beautiful object, the goal is not to transform the model from abject to clean or reinforce societal expectations on the representation of the female body but to bring a missing element into the gallery.
