we breathe...we live...we suffer surveys pain and the layers beneath the surface
It is driven by the effects of victimisation, discrimination and ridicule - that diminishes the voice of speaking out

RELICS

Relics explore cultural heritage, identity and ‘sense of place’.

Through mankind’s discovery of precious metals there has been substantial advancement of metal smithing. Over time, objects such as gold and silver coins have been created in all shapes and sizes.

An endless array of motifs and patterns that signified belief, status, wealth, place and time have since been applied by craftspeople for thousands of years – from the simplest marks to the most elaborate and intricate decors.

In times gone by, gold and silver coins were the most valuable trading currency. Traditionally, they have been passed down to descending generations – not only for their intrinsic value but also for the sentimental significance such relics carried to family members.

Often lost through theft, wars and migration, many treasures and keep-sakes have become even more valuable over time if they did survive such adversities.

Relics draw attention to the values that have been passed down from our ancestors throughout the ages; how they shaped us as individuals - who we are, what we know and where we are going. It observes where such values take their place within society and what society values today.

Indeed, this work questions the thin line between our moral currency and our material currency.
