PREZIOSA Cutting the mirror.
12 artists jewellers. An aesthetic lexicon Exhibition's concept, by Maria Cristina Bergesio, curator.

The 2009’s edition of Lucca Preziosa could be considered an attempt to approach the complex theme of beauty in the research jewellery.
In the commercial jewellery the main aim is to give beauty to the person that will wear jewels, this is its first function. The jewel is an object that is giving a codified beauty and that of course have to respect rules and canons. This is not happening in the word of research jewellery. The jewel is an aesthetic work for itself and is an expression of a specific artistic choice. Moreover it is an empathic work that requires an active attitude of the public, a more reflective look, an observation of its peculiarities, shapes, materials, contents, provocations.
The aim of the exhibition is to give an idea of the wide range of various researches in act in the jewellery as an art form.
To explore this stratified field the exhibition is thought as an itinerary built up around key-words coming from the lexicon of aesthetics.
The jewels are selected as visualizations of an aesthetic concept that is giving to the public the possibility to focus on a certain aspects of the artist’s research. In this way each work represent a particular declension of the beauty’s concept.
Moreover looking at the exhibition as a whole, it could be possible to see the metamorphosis and the erosion of the classic beauty’s ideals from the ’60 till today. As the visual arts also research jewellery records the opening and the breaking of canons, introducing the shade of beauty: chaos, deformations, imperfections.
Cutting the mirror is a metaphor, giving a suggestion to the public regarding the fact that today there is no more an unique concept of beauty, but complex and stratified conceptions.
The exhibition, organized in a chronological order (following the birth date of the artist), will start with the works a masters that represent the classical beauty, in the sense of harmony and measure.
Around the sixty’s artist looking for a new beauty, working more around the shape of the jewel, outside the rules of traditional jewellery.

Measurement and Order, Mario Pinton
Harmony and Proportion, Yasuki Hiramatsu


The exhibition will go on with pieces by artists that open the concept of beauty and witness a widespread idea of beauty that is characterizing our time.
The jewel is becoming a field of intense experimentation, a condenser of various stimuli.
Each jewel is reflecting a personal path, that could be more linked with a technical experimentation, a poetic content, the structure of the jewel, the use of traditional materials in a new way or a non conventional one, the freedom of imagination, the art of trash, the colour as unique medium, the pleasure of imperfection.
