OMNIA MUTANTUR, NIHIL INTERIT, 2009
The collection of silver brooches with golden needles «Omnia Mutantur, Nihil Interit» («everything changes, nothing is truly lost» in Latin) was displayed at the exhibition in gallery Putti in Riga in February 2009. Sharp transformations are the main motif of the collection, transformations of things and feelings in the course of time. Brooch as a symbol of lively soul impression, as a secret sensation attached to the heart, as a moment transformed into treasure.
The collection comprises old photos and reproductions of old decorations created anew. Jewels are displayed next to scratched glass taken from grandmother’s brooches or found at Murano beach, each of unique value – natural or acquired. Silhouettes of people, ships, pigeons, old and new, expensive and cheap – everything is combined into single glancing changeable flow.
