Jon Kessler’s (*1957, in Yonkers, New York, lives and works in New York) edition Keeper Of The Key is from the series Kessler’s Gifts, which he has been creating for years on special occasions for friends and close acquaintances. Many of the objects Kessler uses in his works are drawn from other cultures, like in this work the kitsch objects found in Chinatown. He lends them a different status and simultaneously addresses their changes in value. The person possessing this edition is very close to the artist – it’s the key to his studio in New York. But the title also refers to a different topic. The protagonists of "Earthkeeper Activation" count as the world’s top experts on energies, crystals & healing gems, sacred sites, network nodes, vortices, portals, and the planetary grid system. Perhaps it is the key to a totally different level?
