2013/14 - Unique Jewellery Pieces
Ph: Manu Ocaña, Julieta Ansalas & Coca Tasso
The word “Petium” comes from Latin meaning “a piece of something broken or a fragment found after a shipwreck ". This definition gives way to a parallelism between two images/scenes:
By one side, on the shore of the sea, the rests of a shipwreck are revealed by the water. The tide acting as a transformation engine, cleaning, drawing from the deep what had been lost, forgotten.
On the other hand, my reality: the vortex of the city, the excessive consumerism of humankind, a tornado of discard that spits out the remains of society. Which is my mission? To collect these drags as treasures, like shells on the shore. And then transform them, give them a second chance, a new life, reuse what someone considered worthless and leave in it a trace of myself.
My pieces are like a conjunction that combines various elements, coming from diverse harbours and corners. They are collages, assemblages. A conglomeration is created where this multiplicity has a relation and it is the conjunction of the elements that defines a whole, through which I intend to reflect my own world.
On words of curator Nichka Marobin from The Morning Bark:
The well tempered disorder: There is always a joie de vivre in Eva Burton's creations, mixed with a skillful, organized technique and sense of composition (…) June, 2015.
