REMNANTS

Remnants was a collaboration between Nicole and the Columbus community. Dozens of old house keys were collected from friends, family and local residents. The keys, whether they belonged to old neighbors or first apartments, served as domestic artifacts that represent a tangible connection to a departed space, even if their origin and function has long been forgotten. These vestiges of home, supplied by the community, were preserved as tokens of memory and nostalgia. When the exhibition closed, each Key-Turned-Art was returned to its original owner, recognized and honored for it’s personal connection to a departed space.
