Preziosa 2006

No Body Decoration

Lucca, Villa Bottini. September-October, 2006
Curator, Maria Cristina Bergesio
Coordinator, Giò Carbone

The exhibition highlights the evolution of the body-jewellery relationship in the field of artistic research and innovation, in contrast to the usual perception of jewellery as decoration or fashion accessory. In research jewellery, the human body acquires a fundamental role as a source of inspiration and a necessary completion of the creative process.

Artists:
Friedrich Becker, Bruno Martinazzi, Gerd Rothmann, Gijs Bakker, Christoph Zellweger, Frédéric Braham, Ruudt Peters, Naomi Filmer, David Watkins, Marjorie Schick, Noam Ben–Jacov.
