Veronika Fabian (Kecskemét, Hungary, 1979) investigates the impact of contemporary capitalism on daily life and personal identity, both of which play a vital role in her project Chained. She conducted a survey asking individuals to name their most essential possessions as a way to investigate the role of artifacts as signifiers of identity and as a potential way through which value can be created and expressed. Fabian condensed the outcome of the survey into a series of chain necklaces, analyzing and reflecting on our material culture, to stimulate a dialogue on the necessity and value of our things. In addition to the pieces, Chained expands across mediums, comprising short stories and several musical singles produced in a collaborative project. Along with the jewellery pieces and music videos, Fabian presents Chained in an AR fitting room where audiences are invited to try on the collection.
