Schmuck 2013 – EXPO ‘Flora eats Fauna’ – Nymphenburg Palace, Munich (DE) – 8-10 Mars 2013

Flora eats Fauna

Who are they?
(Animals? Plants? Organisms? Objects? Bodies? Humans?… Creatures?)
If we are vulnerable, how vulnerable are they?
Who nurtures who? Does life precede death, or does death precede life?
Come and wander amongst ‘the others’, let yourself get intertwined in a cycle caught between defense and protection, captivating beauty and cruelty.
Discover your own values through their bewildering characteristics. We need each other.

* students of Gerrit Rietveld’s Jewellery Department

on different location throughout the city of Amsterdam:
 - Sieraad Art fair: opening on the 4th. of November: 2am – 9pm
 - Rietveld Uncut at De Brakke Grond: 12th of November from 7 – 11pm & 13th of November from 1am – 11pm

“xxx Jewels”
The first thing you see when you arrive in Amsterdam Schiphol is a huge poster with a woman showing her bare breast.
‘Sex Sells’ is an overused concept.
Students of the Jewelry Department Het Sieraad of the Gerrit Rietveld Academie use this principle to show their work. They made collages combining pornography with their jewelry pieces. The explicit character of the pornography is transformed into a new image; a dialogue between body and jewel.
“xxx Jewels”, is a jewelry presentation in form of posters and a magazine.
The posters will be spread around the city during the time of the festival. The magazine is for sale and will be shown at the different locations of the B-side Festival; it also will be presented at the opening of the jewelry fair Sieraad, the 4th. of November between 2am and 9pm.



* Claire Baloge & Monika Zampa : “Stalagmite & Stalactite”

at 19 Pieter Jacobszstraat, (near Nes), Amsterdam

Saturday 14.00 – 20.00, Sunday 14.00 – 18.00

We invite the public to enter our private space, “cave”, where they can discover our personal world. Where not only jewellery is growing but also other forms and shapes of artistic expression take place. It is a continuous process of growth, like stalagmites and stalactites.

“Valuables – the weight of ideas”
If we assume that:
and that:
We get closer to our belief of what jewelry is, of what it can be.
Through a joint exhibition and installation, we’d like to give our jewelry, and to the ideas originating it, a new specific weight, questioning and triggering the common sense of what is valuable.
How can we define a balance between material value and idea value? Between the visible and the invisible? Between tangible and emotional?
When discussing and questioning jewelry, the connotation of “value” (be it financial, sentimental, symbolical..) is always present. It therefore comes natural, to openly address the value issue, in all its shades and definitions, through contemporary jewelry.


Grassimesse 2010 – Leipzig (DE) – 29-31 Oct 2010


The GRASSIMESSE is organized by the GRASSI museum of Applied Art (Leipzig) and takes place in the reconstructed Grassimuseum, an important building of the Art Decó period. Three exhibition rooms with a total of 1200 sqm provide space for 85 exhibitors.

The GRASSIMESSE is an international forum and a fair for applied art and product design from all fields. It stands in the tradition of the historical GRASSIMESSE, founded in 1920 and famous as “Meeting Place of Modernity.” Since the reestablishment in 1997, the fair has been held once each year on the last weekend of October.

The GRASSIMESSE forum and sales exhibition in equal measure, reflects the world of ideas and the variety of contemporary creative design, promotes developments and sharpens the awareness for design quality. Unique products, limited editions and sample industrial products of jewellery, ceramics, glass, textile, clothing, furniture, metal, leather, toys etc. display a fascinating variety of creative design which allures to see and buy as well. This selection and international orientation enables to gain a comprehensive overview of recent innovations and trends, as well as timeless modern design.

Subject and concern of the GRASSIMESSE is the selection and promotion of quality. Therefore a jury of experts decides on the selection of the exhibitors and will award the four prizes on the occasion of the GRASSIMESSE.
