Preziosa 2013

Un Certain Regard

Florence, Marino Marini Contemporary Art Museum
20th of June – 21st of July, 2013

Curator, Maria Cristina Bergesio
Coordinator, Giò Carbone

PREZIOSA 2013 starts from the otherness of this peculiar Art,
and wants to focus on visual reaction of the “public” in face of contemporary research jewellery.

Three thematic sections were created: “Ornamentorum Lex”, “Essere o non essere?”, “Quel che vedo è quello che vedo!”
The exhibition presents works by six international artists selected as examples of specific issues related to the imaginary: recognition/estrangement/surprise/rejection/trespassing,
and will be divided into three sections:

- The conceptual research on the imagination in jewellery: Suska Mackert
- "To be or not be": shapes visually recall ancient jewels like precious objects, but in reality....? Karin Seufert and Philip Sajet
- "What I see is what I see!"
The irony of David Bielander; The aggressiveness of Sophie Hanagarth; The fun mechanics of Sigurd Bronger.

Side Events
PREZIOSA 2013 includes two side events at the main exhibition, offering visitors additional opportunities for reflection on contemporary jewellery:

-Symbiosis
A photo project developed by the artist Eva Sauer.
The exhibition of jewellery is complemented by a photographic project of the show itself.
The need to show how these jewels can be worn in everyday life, how they interact with the people and with the surrounding space, has led to a specific concept, project, which has been developed using the skill and sensitivity of the particular photographer Eva Sauer.
Twelve jewels, which will be shown in the exhibition, will be chosen, worn and set in particular places of the city of Florence.
The twelve pictures will be displayed in the Museo Marino Marini inside PREZIOSA exhibition, and will also be present in the places where the photos were taken, so as to establish a mutual connection between the exhibition space and the town.

PREZIOSA Young 2013
The work of the 8 emerging artists selected based on their personal research in contemporary jewellery,
will be the “Young” section of PREZIOSA 2013.
