bright red tipped pink nylon, black powdercoated brass, textile pen
To mark e.g.etal’s 25th anniversary, a collection of e.g.etal artists have each created a piece of jewellery that exists at the intersection of defiance and desire. These are beautiful, covetable objects that also challenge the wearer and push at the boundaries of what jewellery can be.
Much as a bee is attracted to the bright colours of flowers, the use of colour in this work serves to draw in and seduce the wearer. With its black rigid metal parts and unruly hot pink and red fringing, the neckpiece speaks to notions of attraction and desirability. Its articulated construction conjures thoughts of hinges and toys with moving parts, and the wearer is encouraged to interact with it, forming patterns of their own making. The predominantly unconventional materials used are elevated through creative manipulation and innovation to form a desirable work of art that challenges notions of preciousness and how value is assigned to materials. Wearer interactivity pushes the boundaries of jewellery’s intended use: not only as adornment, but also for play.
Pieces from this collection will be shipped at the conclusion of the exhibition (from 23rd November, 2023)
