Hrafnhildur Halldorsdottir, 2020, Iceland


Amalgam means mixture and this speaks to how on a practical and conceptual level this piece consists of many strands working together to make a whole. This feels both like a personal statement of multiplicity and identity, but also as a statement of existence within a wider population where community achieves much more than the individual. This amulet brings to the wearer and the viewer, a sense of history of time and being.
