Love Currency

Love Currency is a sharing experience, based on my personal story. I bring together conceptual aspects to discuss how we see the 'value' in human interaction. I hope that the work provides viewers the chance to connect to it in their own way. There are three important symbols presented in order to express the idea in the triangle shape between 'love', 'currency' and 'value'. These three values are represented by food, money and rings. These symbols provide audiences with a symbolic exchange by considering the meaning within the context of history and art.

Love Currency is a solo-dining restaurant which is a platform allowing people to rethink the value of 'Love' in their life experience. My intention is to create a quietness within the space to allow contemplation about love.

  • I see myself as an art worker. My starting point when building my work often comes from everyday objects, body and spaces. It is dominated by a perpetual challenge to express my emotion through form. Through my work people can see I am a storyteller. In order to create the narrative, I am challenging myself to work on a wider scale, which means space is important for me. I am asking myself how I can organise the space with my objects or jewellery to communicate personal interpretations to an audience.  Also I think about how I can charge atmospheres, and also explore questions about the balance between visual spectacle and human contact.
