Spoons (objects) Born with a silver spoon
2022 - 2022
Third Prize (3rd Lions Club Hanau Youth Promotion Prize)
The German gold and silversmith Merit Christan (°1989) also took part in the Silver Triennial in 2019. The title of this work speaks for itself: Born with a silver spoon. The spoon may well be man’s oldest eating utensil. Christan designed the series of non-functional spoons as a comment on social inequality. She reminds us that not everyone is born with a silver spoon in their mouth. Even today, the chances you are given in life all too often depend on the environment you are born into.
