Within the framework of the future show under the working title "Taman upcycling in historical perspective", the artists will reflect on local archaeological context, connected to the unique cases of ancient upcycling/secondary use of objects, from a ritual, economical and status point of view.
Example of upcycling in historical perspective: these large amber beads were used as a charm against blindness by the MacDonald family in Scotland in 18th century. They were probably once part of a necklace. Amber was traditionally valued as amuletic protection against illness and, more specifically, as a cure for the diseases of the eyes. Part of the collection of National Museums Scotland.
