Path of Pins

Nadja Ellinger

Path of Pins is a visual re-telling of Little Red Riding Hood, revolving around adolescence and the awakening of the primordial and archaic feminine. As an oral tradition, the fairy tale is constantly changing and evading any attempt to fix it, and so the project is just a thread in the tapestry of stories about the girl who defeated the wolf.
