PIRAMIDES

Always fascinated by the object of a piramide, I started research on the object and I learned that he Egyptians believed the piramide is a gateway to the home in the afterlife. A truly poetic and symbolic way to give meaning to the home, I instantly felt the urge to make it my own, as in my work I am also searching for a home between the dutch and serbian identities I cary. 

Originated from a traditional dish I started making these piramdes. Inside are red pepper skins, roasted an dried. 'Lucene paprike' is one of my favorite dishes but  it originally is made with white/yellow peppers. Since it's hard to find those types of peppers here in the Netherlands, I started making this dish in my own Dutch way with red peppers. 

The red color in the piramides will fade after a while if you put the piramide out in the sun. Again a very symbolic way to show the fading connection with my Serbian roots. Putting the skins in the resin piramides I try to conserve my identity en heritage.
