Says Galerie Sofie Lachaert, "Money, coins as well as bank notes, are nomadic objects, reflections of a nation, of its style and tradition, its past and present. They are stamped and printed in inconceivably big numbers."
Dollar Koi origami by Won Park
"And yet, every coin has its very own history, makes a never ending journey through the world, through time and the lives of so many. Its value lost or added in time, intrinsic or constructed..."
A golden Flycatcher by Hilde De Decker
"A passing non-object, a cherished collectible, a lucky charm, or just some metal, a piece of paper."
