SILVER MINE
SILVER MINE
2010

Silver: First metal to be used as a currency, more than 4,000 years ago/ Form of money legal currency up until the 1970’s/
Site-specific construction/ precarious and transient/ modification of my studio space with found, and every-day materials/ cardboard/ tinfol/ tape/velcro/
Experiences of inhabiting a minimal space: //\\ The acupuncturist’s couch //\\ A foundational family myth //\\ An abandoned baby at the entrance to a silver mine in Spain, 1875/
Fragility and resistance/ precariousness and value/ familiarity and strangeness/
Making my own money :“Zones”/
Spaces that make us think about the ways we construct space, intellectually and physically.
