New Identifications, Gone by the wind, Zuiderzee Museum
For the exhibition Gone With the Wind at the Zuiderzeemuseum in Enkhuizen, Atelier Ted Noten has made a collection of earrings, "New Identifications".
The fishermen from the former Zuiderzee (Southern Sea) used to wear a single gold earring, decorated with nautical symbols. These rings would cover funeral costst, in case the fisherman would drown. Atelier Ted Noten has made a new series of these earrings, showing new symbols now that the fishing industry has largely vanished, such as i-Pods and windmills.
