‘Finger Lickin’ Good’


For this exhibition, Annie created a piece that is meant to play on where we place value within culture and craft. Does it have worth because it is beautifully made from precious metals? Or will it alternatively always be associated with the cheap consumable it is based on? It also makes a broader point about the endless consumption of commodities within Western culture .Is it jewellery due to the scale and materials? Or something else, a token, talisman as it has findings to be strung from?


Materials: 18ct gold-plated sterling silver chicken leg with custom printed chicken box included.
