A bandage is often abandoned at the end of the healing process, once the wound is healed or the bandage itself has become worn and redundant.
Having experienced several cuts and injuries through his artistic process, Navid Nuur elevates the usually transient bandage to a position of status and value with his unique edition ‘From the cutting collection’. Rather than discard the bandage, immortalising the object in this way allows it to survive as a memory of an incident which was overcome and highlights the contradiction between its previous use to heal and its subsequent loss of function.
Cast elegantly in Titanium these pendant and chain serve as a reference to the restorative process that Nuur believes should be celebrated and preserved.
Produced on the occasion of the exhibition NAVID NUUR: Phantom Fuel at Parasol unit, 13 March – 19 May 2013.
