Mariana Acosta - from my class at Universidad Gestalt de Diseño.
2013-2015. Five years ago I had to abandon my dream of staying in the US after graduating from my MFA, just like many other international art students and friends who had to leave during 2008 recession. Only the though ones remained, gloriously if I may say, they honor the opportunity they were given every day. What to do with a degree that is barely know in México – contemporary jewelry – often mistaken for traditional designers jewelry?
Well, I decided to teach. It’s been four years since I started this life project, and I call it that because for me, informing the new generations about contemporary jewelry is a life mission. I work with waste materials. Why? Because they were all I had left as working materials after graduating from a very prestigious but also pricey school. So I decided to make lemonade with the lemons I had, or as I named my toilet paper cardboard rolls jewelry series « When Life Gives you Shit, Use it as Fertilizer « . As a result, three years later, I am gathering the outcome of this project with a physical & virtual exhibition. Thank you everyone who has handed me an opportunity to make this happen. Special thanks to Universidad Gestalt de Diseño in Xalapa, Ver. Mx for fostering an opportunity for contemporary jewelry to flourish in México.
