Tracey Clement, R/V/O 1.1, 1999, steel, silver, gold, monel, hematite, Smithsonian American Art Museum, © 1999 Tracey Clement, Gift of Zack Peabody, 2000.62.6
This necklace is one in a series based on ideas of repetition, variation, and obsession (R/V/O); the pendant's teardrop shape appears throughout the series. For Tracey Clement, the interplay between form and material mirrors our perceptions of femininity and masculinity. The industrial quality of the Monel, a steel alloy with a high nickel content, alludes to "masculine" qualities, while the round shape of the pendant, connected to the necklace by a ball-and-socket joint, symbolizes the "feminine."
