Intimate relationship exhibition
Intimate relationship Contemporary Art Jewellery exhibition was officially opened on 4th October 2021 at LANNG SPACE Art Center, Vintage, China World Trade Center. It was the 2nd VONMO studio project curated by Felicia Li, the director of VONMO Studio. 210 high-quality exhibits from 72 artists all over the world were exhibited.
“Intimate relationships” by means of jewelry, and photographs shot by the artists that support the logical concept behind the jewelry works also had been presented simultaneously.
My contribution to this exhibition was the brooch “Spry powder”, made of driftwood, anodized titanium, silver 925, glass, amethysts, micro-granules and lacquer. The concept behind the brooch consists in my childhood:
My interest for jewellery came when I was a child from my mother. I`ve always browsed her treasure drawers, admired the colours and shapes of her earrings, necklaces, brooches and rings. She had a lot of non-precious material pieces made of Bakelite, painted metals, wood, glass or plastic. I`ve carefully played with the pieces, they were like toys for me. Sometimes, when I found a broken jewellery piece or two, I`ve tried to put it together again or to make another wearable piece out of it. I`ve learned to recycle and to create something original. It became important for me to find a way, how to put materials and colours together. Precious and non-precious materials has become one whole. Soft and strong colours are playing together one symphony. I`m very thankful to my mama for letting me play with her jewellery since I was a child, about 7 years old.
