Winner 2014 Confrontations New traditional Jewellery.
The polarity between the German word for fork ‚Gabel‘ and the Korean word for chopsticks ‚Cheotgarak‘ will be displayed through this work. The words describe representative goods of two opposed cultures, through which the viewer can capture the confrontation of these cultures. Looking at the brooch made out of the letters of the two words, the difference between the alphabet and the Korean script will be recognized immediately. By trying to read the combination of letters the viewer will encounter a moment of confrontation with him or herself.
Material : Silber, steel, beech wood, lime wood, sycamore wood
