Object no 8: Traces, by Helga Ósk Einarsdóttir, Iceland

Curator's reflection by Anna Leoniak:
In this selection I was inspired by the square frame of the necklace, which is in a way the “leader” of the story that the piece tells. The frame creates a place for the organic form to “live” in its frozen moment. The same way these personal photo slides are in a way trapped in the square frames as part of the rings that let that important moment last. Both of the pieces have frames, and both of them can be part of the wearer, but they tell different stories.

Réflexion de la curatrice Anna Leoniak:
Dans cette sélection, j’ai été inspirée par la forme carrée du collier, qui est en quelque sorte l’élément central de l'histoire que raconte l’objet. Elle permet à la forme organique de « vivre » dans un moment figé. De la même façon, ces diapositives personnelles sont en quelque sorte capturées dans les carrés intégrés dans les anneaux qui permettent à ce moment important de durer. Les deux objets ont chacun leur cadre, ils racontent des histoires différentes, mais tous deux peuvent devenir une partie de l'utilisateur...
