GOLDEN THREAD

conceptual ring, an annual culture prize of municipality Arnhem

for Open-Air Museum in Arnhem.

 

I created a ring not only for one finger,

for many of them, for all employees of the museum.

Dragging a golden thread, I circled the grounds of the museum.

I surrounded the past with a golden thread.

I wound the whole thread around a wooden spool,

which had a burned Latin palindrome on the top:

IN GIRUM IMUS NOCTE ET CONSUMIMUR IGNI

(we go into the circle by night, we are consumed by fire)

 

material: wood, golden thread
