Hilde De Decker's work is not only an object-based practice but also a spatial one, the body serving not as the exclusive destination for jewellery, but as the reference to operate in a human-scale environment. The metaphor of the home says a lot about her work, which is an investigation of value creation when diving into the dense materiality of everyday life. Her work has to be approached as a sensorial architecture made up of several chambers. Like successive still lifes, they reveal an internal logic underlying the artist's recurrent themes: jewellery as a perspective to reflect on value; domesticity and conceptualism; and the beauty of the obsolete.
