WEAPON OR FORTRESS?
Stone, bronze, iron, concrete, resin, rope. Mixed media.
My inspiration for this collection comes from my hard personal experience during the economic crisis in my country. My personal business collapsed and I had no other choice than …to fight and start over…
So, I decided to “build” a fortress to protect and defend myself.
“I‘m getting ready. I’m building my fortress for protection. It is my base for new adventures although I do not know yet where they will lead me.But I will defend myself, I will fight!”
The jewelry – objects I create, are pieces of “the fortress” or improvised “weapons“.They are structures of wire, which connect various bronze elements, stones or pieces of broken glass found around me, covered all with concrete.
