Boghossian presents Gold Thread
This installation highlights the dialogue between cultures and the extraordinary beauty that has resulted from multicultural infl uences. Silk, being the most precious good traded on the Silk Road, is also the fulcrum of both the Boghossian stand and the jewelry on display. Visitors will fi rst discover a modern cabinet of curiosities held solely on silk cords, only to realize that the jewels were also conceived using a similar weaving practice, this time crafted from the last remaining pieces of an 18 karat gold silk.
