Rapture, 2016

300 Necklaces and velvet jewelry pedestals
8 ft h x 5 ft w x 4 ft d

Invited to create new work for an exhibition curated by No Longer Empty in a luxury townhouse in Manhattan’s Upper East Side, the artist transforms the bedroom closet into a jewel box entitled Rapture. The site-specific assemblage of over three hundred necklaces and jewelry pedestals speak to the seduction of consumerism, while existing within the intimate, personal space of a wardrobe.
