I am presenting two pieces based on the theme of luck. Although they can be shown apart and in different locations, they both arise from the same concept, this being the question of how we relate to luck. I am interested in how we build ties between destiny, luck and expectancy, and how luck-charms are used in an attempt to provide, prevent or change any given path or way in life.
