Thai artist Taweesak Molsawat’s work raises questions of jewellery as a cultural, social and commercial constructed signifier in today’s society. The artist aims to investigate and explore the new conceptual approaches regarding functions, roles and definitions of jewellery related to the human body. This performance acts as a catalyst in the paradoxical and ambiguous world of visual and conceptual jewellery. It seeks to question and provoke new endless interpretations of jewellery through the disappearance of physical forms, and the appearance of wearing memory as jewellery.
