Nomadic Souvenirs

My way of working is by collecting materials from different places and composing them into wearable objects. I chose the key chain shape because it is one of the most intimate objects we have—the key chain is always close to our body and it contains personal identity items. The materials I’m using—such as stones I pick from Israel, colorful plastic waste, metal remnants, etc.—are a way for me to ask questions about material politics and different kinds of values: emotional, financial, political and historical. I make “souvenirs” of allusive moments and places, simple actions represented in an object.

Due to the building guidelines that are in place in response to the COVID-19 situation, we are unable to install a new art exhibit in 2020 in our Farmington Hills, Michigan and Fort Worth, Texas offices.

Thankfully, the majority of artists who currently have their work on display in our Michigan and Texas locations have graciously allowed us to continue to do so for another year, through the spring of 2021. We would like to extend a huge thank you to those artists and we look forward to continuing with a new exhibition in the summer of 2021.
