Anna Schwartz Gallery presents 'UNcommon Moments' by Susan Cohn — Melbourne, Australia — 27 AUG - 3 OCT, 2015

Anna Schwartz Gallery, Melbourne, 185 Flinders Lane

Three moments: Dying, Welcoming, Continuing. None of these are easy. There is always a struggle when somebody dies, or arrives, or is even just trying to continue. These moments could be said to mark the limits of community: the living and the dead, the in-group and the out-group, the heart of the group itself. Such departures, arrivals and continuations should be recognized, and marked. How can such a gesture be made? Jewellery is more than its materiality, the creation of a beautiful adornment. It is a gift. It can say: I see, I wish I could make it better for you. It recognises pain at the limits and turns it into an exchange, forging an ongoing bond.
