CURRENT – MANO × Orizzonti
In the beginning of the 2014, MANO has teamed up with Japanese contemporary jewellery group Orizzonti to present the touring exhibition “CURRENT”.
12 artists, with different backgrounds, from 7 countries, came together to think about the basic question: “where is the world going?” The name of the exhibition “CURRENT” not only stands for the flow of ideas but also what’s happening in the world now. Both those concepts are intended to be expressed through jewellery. Each piece is presented together with the concept video made by the artist.
In Living with Art, Mark Getlein proposes 6 activities, services or functions of contemporary artists :
1. Create placese for some human purpose.
2. Create extraoridinary versions of ordinary objects.
3. Record and commemorate.
4. Give tangible form to the unknown.
5. Give tangible form to feelings.
6. Refresh our vision and help see the world in new ways.
MANO is delighted to bring “CURRENT” to the current climate in Taiwan, hoping to offer the viewers to see these extraordinary versions of ordinary objects which express memory, feelings, and the unknown and to see the world in new light.
