Threshold


For the exhibition “Between a break and a breakdown: Jewelry as a mirror of our time” which is a part of the 5th edition of The Jerusalem Biennale, my brooch, necklace and earrings reflect on the theme ‘adaptation’.

I chose aluminium threshold materials, sold in meters and used at bases of doors between rooms. These aluminium strips cover seams between rooms that tell us that change is afoot, they smooth over the difference, they make the transition less jarring.

The Covid-19 pandemic put us in a unpleasant situation where many wanted to return over the treshold to the-way-before, the status quo. Others, some of us who had the privilege to do so, tried or chose to adapt.

The materials I use are a reminder of those tough choices, and a reminder that for some of us, there was no choice.
