The Mojo wall amulet takes inspiration from black magic symbolism in Creole culture. As a long-standing tradition in Creole cultures, black magic spells are commonly used to banish love rivals and weaken an unbreakable bond. These objects are built on sharp geometries aimed at revisiting voodoo dolls and ritual effigies from an abstract perspective.
Both materials and techniques (glass fusion and metallic elements) embody the different strength levels of love ties. On one hand, the metal chains look fragile and dangerously vulnerable, although the material itself is very resistant. On the other hand, the overlapping of colored glass sheets generates a solid tactile connection, although the material itself is very delicate. Eventually, Mojo shows us the shimmering effects and unexpected firmness resulting from the union of two very different elements.
