Permission to Grow Up
People carry along with them family photos, rings and other things of sentimental value, even crucifixes that connect them with beloved ones. These intimate things help us to maintain our inner self-confidence so that we could handle changes that life places on our path and carry on.
This project was inspired by the childhood photographs of four participating artists – the captured moments, various situations and activities from the past years.
Installation consists of jewellery fixed to towels and cloth characteristic to the 1970s-1980s and of photos that inspired each particular piece of jewellery.
”This project is an attempt to recall everyone’s personality and individual thoughts over the years in order to get acquainted with oneself in captured time. We also try to grasp the best flashes of those childhood memories, turn them into jewellery and make peace with the rest, “the artists told.
