Future Primitive 2017
As a sequel to the EVERYBODY NEEDS A ROCK project, I connect on my workbench the artisanal jeweller culture with a distant future. In designing my pieces I strive for a similar amalgam: my self-produced rocks are placed in jewellery pieces that play with classic archetypes, embellished with animal portraits which touch on the tradition of the talisman. The plastic rocks and aluminium ornaments assembled in the jewellery reflects semi-fictional stories in the remote future, where an unknown organism have entirely different sense of value than the one in our present culture. This jewellery series was presented first time at Galerie Rob Koudijs in Amsterdam (solo exhibition in Seprember 2017).
