Universal Declaration of Human Limits

The necklace has been constructed as a slave chain to discuss the form and use of jewelry and also emphasize the heaviness and discomfort of the limits.

In every frame (does not matter which type, frames are typical version of limiting) there have been inserted real visas of mine. Visas to cross the borders that we have created…

At the back of the necklace there have been placed a typical version of residence permit, passport’s stamps to enter and exit for a country as other examples of limitation of freedom of travel and residence.

Finally at the back side of the last frame it has been inserted articles from “the Universal Declaration of Human Rights” to remind ourselves who we are and what we have without question.

Resistance

Dedicated to the people lost their lives at İstanbul Gezi Park Protests…

“What was the first thing in your childhood that you deeply desired? How can you translate it into a piece of jewellery?” was Philip Sajet’s question in the workshop that we participated at Le Arti Orafe Jewellery School. After two hours work of memory digging my answer was “freedom“. I remembered the day that I started a small protest at home against my parents who did not allow me to participate in a school trip (to Cappadocia) when I was 12. I was lying on the floor for 2-3 hours with a piece of paper, “Going to Cappadocia is my right, one way or another I will go!” written on it. It was the first time that I stood up for my rights and fought for my freedom.

The idea was creating a piece of jewellery by combining this strong childhood memory with Gezi Park Protests which took place in my hometown, in Turkey. During the protests government’s consideration of the protective masks as an evidence of a crime and the people who carry the masks as terrorists without a legal base, was the reason to use the mask as the main part of the necklace. By turning the mask into a necklace I aimed to question if “wearing the mask as a piece of jewellery can also be an evidence of a crime”. Also I aimed to focus attention on all illegal treatments against human rights during the protests.

Are we looking for something divine?

After an unnecessarily long monologue for 2 days, I ended up with this object (this time surprisingly not a jewelry)…discussion was “are we looking for something divine?” I thought enough and arrived this point, I have something to pray for. The rest is yours…
