Theme of two cities

In my practice, the idea of gathering, ordening and ‘preserving’ is always present. The elements I look for (and recreate) are based on my surroundings, memories, nature,(archeological) artifacts, and after stylizing them I bring them together to suggest a narrative.
Like a museum display, they show remains of a life that once was (or never was), fragments of what still is, and at the same time the necklaces are an invitation to discover new ways of interaction between different worlds, man and nature.
