Salt Artefacts 2015 - 2022 These objects reference jewellery from the 7th and 8th century, when salt could be exchanged for gold in equal measures. Different from pieces in stone or metal, these items dissolve when in prolonged contact with water and are vulnerable against impact. A certain tension between the viewer and the piece arises once the frailty of the material is understood. As jewellery they exist in reference to the human body, but were not intended to be used. The aim was to bring the current value of the salt present in these objects closer to the value of gold by observing its trajectory–from salt farms to the supermarket shelf, to the studio, and to the gallery / museum / collection–gathering value at each step of its path.
