Artists: Sofia Björkman, SW — Réka Lörincz, HU — Bruce Metcalf, USA – Gisbert Stach, DE — Demitra Thomloudis, USA – Timothy Veske-McMahon, USA
The curators of The Box posed a unique challenge to a select group of artists. Take 5 readymade materials purchased at the dollar store & give value to something invaluable by creating 3 wearable pieces of jewelry. This challenge feeds into the contemporary jewelry artists’ interest in working with non-precious & alternative materials.
The group includes three American and three European artists. They are Bruce Metcalf, Demi Thomloudis, Timothy Veske-McMahon, Sofia Björkman, Réka Lörinz and Gisbert Stach.
Each artist received a box containing five standard size white envelopes, a small white towel, three white erasers, three CDs, and a can of Diet Coke. The materials were chosen because they are all white and echo a metaphorical blank page. These items can also be manipulated in multiple ways.
