EXPO ‘Materiality’ – J-Tour Gallery, Shanghaï (CN) – 5-20 Janv. 2014

« Materiality – Relationship between material and contemporary jewellery” , an exhibition curated by Anna Cheng, was hosted at Ame Gallery (Hong Kong) last month. It is our great honor to showcase works from 16 artists from all over the world, showing a wide spectrum of contemporary jewellery works.  The objective of this show is to highlight the use of unconventional materials used in contemporary jewellery today.

« Materiality”, the dual city exhibitions that feature 16 artists from around the world to interpret materiality in contemporary jewellery.
Material can be referred to as the physical or conceptual properties of the artwork. The Material the artist uses can be seen as a tool or a medium to convey his/her concepts and ideas. The Material itself can also be the inspiration, which becomes the focal point of the art piece.
The unconventional use of materials is one of key themes in contemporary jewellery today. Artists may use any materials that inspire them in their jewellery composition to tell a story and make a statement.
In this exhibition, we focus on the Material chosen by the artists and how it is used as the theme in their contemporary jewellery works.

If you have missed the show in Hong Kong, you can catch it in Shanghai : It will be at J-tour space  from 5 – 20 January.
