Gemstones 2011-2021

Wooden type case, 129 stones, 2021, 67 x 50 x 4 cm

Situating itself within the tradition of collecting gems and crystals from around the world and presenting them as a demonstration of power and wealth in natural history museums or royal collections, ‘Gemstones 2011-2021’ displays 129 ordinary and similar-looking stones collected in various parts of the world during those years. A contrast to ostentatious displays of stones celebrating rare and unique colours, materials and textures, the work is accompanied by a detailed list with the date and exact location of where each stone was discovered, offering insight into the history and identity of each one.
