Vacant Land is a new series of necklaces Ruth Koelewyn created especially for EDITION inspired by different locations in Detroit. Each piece comes in a custom case showcasing the specific map of the location and land shape.
Ruth Koelewyn uses her work to research the significance things have in our everyday lives and how we use objects to learn about the world, be part of society, and bond with others. Her practice includes curatorial projects and collaborative projects. Her work has been recognized and supported by the Pennsylvania Council of the Arts, the Society of North American Goldsmiths, the Mondriaan Foundation, and the National Foundation for Advancement in the Arts.
