“Valuables – the weight of ideas”
If we assume that:
WEIGHT, MATERIAL, TIME CONSUMPTION.. ≠ VALUE
IDEAS = VALUE
We get closer to our belief of what jewelry is, of what it can be.
Through a joint exhibition and installation, we’d like to give our jewelry, and to the ideas originating it, a new specific weight, questioning and triggering the common sense of what is valuable.
How can we define a balance between material value and idea value? Between the visible and the invisible? Between tangible and emotional?
When discussing and questioning jewelry, the connotation of “value” (be it financial, sentimental, symbolical..) is always present. It therefore comes natural, to openly address the value issue, in all its shades and definitions, through contemporary jewelry.
