« Extension, prolongation, parasites of the body, these jewels are a hymn of our material lives, between power, social identity and belief charge. These jewels are made of an association of popular image, highlighting the relationship with the body . Two oilcans as balls are an association of a wood nodule and the oilcan shape, connected by a wire they hang directly between the legs as a soap or lubricating boxes.«
Claire Baloge (FR) - Camel dung, gold leaf, silk (collier en crottes de chameau … j’adore !!)
“I have chosen to use camel dung, because it’s shape and color. Although the use of camel dung in jewelry may provoke it also links: in those (not so) far-away countries, many people are still using these animals, and their excrement, in daily life, while some others, a few miles away , are smoking the cigars of the oil business. I have chosen to use gold because gold is the referential measurement on which the whole world economy is founded. It remains a major symbol for jewelry, almost everywhere around the world. While camels are traditionally emblems of the noble class, in the nomad society, a clear mark of wealth and importance. It seems to be two different temporalities, which are still sharing the same space, coexisting in the same territories.“ (Claire Baloge – expo ‘I care a lot’)
Frances Wadsworth Jones (UK) - collection called « Heaven Sent » – …. yes…. Bird shit…that’s exactly what it is.
Thomasin Durgin – « ring_a_day challenge » – pearl and rhinestone encrusted dog poo
(crotte de chien peinte et ‘décorée’ !!)
« I found the poo and decided to put a coat of paint on it so that it would be dry for tomorrow. Then I put on two more coats of paint. Then I found the rhinestones in some old beading supplies and I was so enthralled that before I knew it the damn thing was made«
