BW 35 mm negatives
45 x 70 cm
Our personal past, memories holds our identity together, our origin determines us. The word breastplate also refers to the religious garment worn by the Jewish high priest during biblical times, that worked as a protective shield by carrying precious stones of tribal ancestors.
Breastplate is a handsewn wearable installation made from BW 35 mm negatives from my personal archives.
The piece was created for my exhibition Protection earlier this year.
