site: interventions, observations, & simulations | Caroline Gore
in conjuction with Fotofest 2010 and the Society of North American Goldsmiths 2010 Conference
In conjunction with The Society of North American Goldsmiths (SNAG) 2010 Conference and Fotofest 2010, Caroline Gore exhibits work creating a link between photography and jewelry in the Mezzanine Gallery at Lawndale Art Center. Gore responds to spaces where she lives and travels, imbuing value and beauty through materials used and created sites of origination for adornment. Gore adhered gold foil to the streets, and on other parts of the environment to create a wearable or simply a signifier of adornment for the environment. The resulting jewelry sourced from this process functions on multiple levels, as a way to share the site-specific experience through wearability.
