Intro
From the very beginning of the ancient history of jewellery, it has been used as a method of linking body and site. A seashell or a stone was put on a string to be worn. The human body was put in dialogue with the greater story of materiality and site. In the project Traces, Sandra Hiredal has taken her starting point in abandoned places. In this abandonment, those places have been resting in their own memories. In her method, Sandra Hiredal has approached sites with great care and slowly brought their sedimented memories to life. She has documented and collected fragments of life which, through her jewellery, are joined together into new meanings which worn by new bodies are linked to these places.
