In the ‘Nomad’ jewellery series Djurdjica Kesic delves into her ongoing interest in ideas about home, place and transportability of home in migration. For Kesic, the house becomes a symbol of something that evokes a sense of place and stability. More specifically these ideas are explored in relation to the migrant experience that is in many ways shaped by transition and movement. The two, house and migration, appear to be in a dichotomy, of something fixed and something in motion. ‘Nomad’ explores these ideas through a series of neckpieces made from an armful of preloved belongings.
