Bead the System

Manon van Kouswijk,

July 5 to 30, 2011

In her latest work, Dutch artist Manon van Kouswijk explores the idea of a strand of beads as a cycle without a clear beginning or end. Her recent book, Hanging Around / the pearlchain principle shows that the basic principle of the beaded necklace can be found in sources from peas in a pod and mathematics to Supernova 1987A, described by scientists as ‘pearls on a cosmic necklace’.
