(49) Utopic Spaces
“Utopia is thus the neutral moment of a difference, the space outside of place; it is a gap impossible either to inscribe on a geographic map or to assign to history. Its reality thus belongs to the order of the text; more precisely, it is the figurative representation that the text inscribes beneath its discourse, and by it’’
Louis Marin from Utopiques, jeux d’espace
« Utopic spaces are sites with no real place but they have a general relation of direct or inverted analogy with the real space. »Utopic Spaces /Concept
Titi Berrio« utopic space clearly emerges as a space of transformation, which does not exist in structuring built space but rather in the continual transformation of a space that remains forever flexible: the mind. »Utopic Spaces /Concept
The landscape is the container of our utopia, we transform it and it tries to keep growing between the spontaneity of nature and the human action. As a result of this, the contemporary landscapes are a mixture of dreams, intentions and chance.
Utopic Spaces is a way of materializing through jewellery the meeting of two worlds, two realities and two ways of dreaming, by Romanian artist, Noha Nicolescu, and Colombian artist, Titi Berrio.

The landscape is the container of our utopia, we transform it and it tries to keep growing between the spontaneity of nature and the human action.
As a result of this, the contemporary landscapes are a mixture of dreams, intentions and chance. We put spaces and structures that are filled with experiences, nature, feelings and emotions on a canvas called landscape and we do the same with the jewels that can appropriate the body’s landscape.
Utopic Spaces is a way of materializing through jewelry the meeting of two worlds, two realities and two ways of dreaming. Noha Nicolescu from Romania and Titi Berrio from Colombia appropriated an atelier , a landscape in which a collective dream is built and exposed.
