Keep is a wry look at how a jewellery artist stores her own jewellery.
Unceremoniously tucked in corners of plastic grip seal bags, wrapped like a slice of cake in kitchen paper, scrunched up in a tissue, folded in a handkerchief or secured with paper and an elastic band are just some of the ways the artist’s personal jewellery is stashed and stowed.
Lin presents a small series of jewellery objects that explore the more pragmatic side of owning personal possessions.
