The exhibition NEAR AND ELSEWHERE refers to the urban or natural „place“ and to the possibility of a place to embody memory. It explores the role of contemporary jewellery and how artists’ inspiration is linked to a sense of space and place by connecting two of the most popular inspirations in art: nature and architecture. The jewels explore both tangible and intangible features of a „place“. First the tangible, physical and visual characteristics, like buildings, landscapes, objects and textures can serve as a major source of inspiration. Second come the intangible elements like memories, a sense of knowing something by experience. By becoming deeply involved with a place and by coming to know that one place and its inhabitants intimately it creates meaning and value in the experience.
WHERE I DRAW THE LINE
MUNICH JEWELERY WEEK 2020
11th - 14th March 2020
The exhibition “WHERE I DRAW THE LINE” explores how contemporary jewellery artists from across the globe address one of the most important issues of our time: The moment where urbanity meets nature and does not leave nature unchanged. As cities grow and urban infrastructure continues to overwhelm the environment, the exhibition comments on the fragile relationship humanity maintains with the built and the natural world.
By playing with the perceived differences in the visual languages, it invites the viewer to consider their personal inspirations in the context of shifting values.
MILANO JEWELERY WEEK 2019
24th - 27th October 2019
Corso di Porta Venezia 51, Milano
Previously presented at the Munich Jewellery Week 2019, IN FLUX exhibits the selected works of artists Edwin Charmain, Katharina Kraus, Elisavet Messi and Lingjun Sun. The exhibition brings together jewellery that demonstrates exceptional craftsmanship in design, jewellery and metalwork from across the globe, showcasing an international spectrum of contemporary craft practices.
The jewels encourage visitors to speculate about the future of this fascinating and precarious profession. In a consumer-centred context, moving away from the modern culture of mass production and mass consumption by utilising traditional hand skills to create smaller numbers of individual jewellery pieces. The pieces explore the relationship between idea, design, maker and material, opening a conversation about ethical sourcing and sustainability.
