Value Archive, 2013 – , ongoing artist book, 40×40×40cm.
This art piece stems from my interest in memories and values. Memories and values shape our current behaviour and the way we perpetuate customs and traditions. I wanted to visually reflect on intrinsic values, trying to understand how other people around me influence me and my everyday life. The work is created with the participation of a group of women. All of them have influenced my life in different ways. Some of them I know well and some I know only a little. But all of them are in a way my role models. Unconsciously, we classify, organize and memorialise events in our lives that we can connect to our values. In 2013 I sent a letter to 43 women and asked them to share in the creation of a book based on messages or knowledge they wanted to pass on to future generations. Now the pages are 49 equal to my age.
