May 16 - August 11, 2013
A Bit of Clay on the Skin: New Ceramic Jewellery explores the appeal of ceramics, especially porcelain, in jewellery. Organized by the Fondation d'Entreprise Bernardaud and curated by the renowned German-born goldsmith and jewellery artist Monika Brugger, the exhibition showcases the versatility and allure of the medium, which can be modeled or cast, used alone or with metal, wood, and stone, and vary in color and texture.
The exhibition presents 140 works and features the work of 20 cutting-edge jewellery artists, including creations by such notables as Peter Hoogeboom (The Netherlands), Ted Noten (The Netherlands), Gésine Hackenberg (Germany), Marie Pendariès (Spain), and Shu-Lin Wu (Taiwan). While some make reference to traditional jewellery in materials and symbolism, others altogether redefine it in substance, form, and matter.
