ABOUT THE COMPETITION:

The Legnica International Jewellery Competition is the main event of the Legnica Jewellery Festival SILVER, organized by the Gallery of Art since 1979. The competition has opened character and is addressed to all artists, who have a task to submit works which are characterized by an original creative idea and high artistic and technical level. Idea, worth and sense of the artistic statement are prefered. The submitted works are qualified by an international jury. This year theme of the competition is REVOLT. The competition is organized under the partronage of the Minister of Culture and National Heritage, who founds Grand Prix.

 

IDEA:

It is better not to turn on the television today. We are being attacked by images of economic crises, stock market crashes, falling ratings, budget deficits, cost cutting programs and increasing unemployment from everywhere. As a reaction to the overwhelming impression of a lack of opportunities there are emerging movements such as "Occupy ...", helplessly protesting against banksters, corporations and governments. Doesn't speaking in such circumstances about jewellery – the subject invariably associated with the demonstration of wealth and selfish hedonism – seem socially unacceptable and even ethically suspect? After all, the burning  of ATMs and the broken glass of jeweller's shops have become part of the frustration of all the Indignados.

But there is also another aspect of the design and use of jewellery – which – like no other product of the imagination – can be an effective message, manifesting the point of view of the user – a voice of protest, being anti-or pro-, attitudes of rebellion, rebellion and guerrilla warfare. Can a standard set of slogans written out on banners, T-shirts and slap tags be complemented with another more sophisticated message? Are jewellery designers able to demonstrate their own opinion and join the discussion concerning non-aesthetic issues? Is the tradition of exclusive gold jewellery going to be our irreversible remorse? And will the chorus "Diamonds are a girl's best friend" always sound  as infantile as the recent testimony before the European Court of Justice in The Hague of the famous model Naomi Campbell, who at one time accepted an embarrassing gift from the dictator of Liberia, tried for war crimes, so evocatively reconstructed in the movie "Blood Diamond" with Leo DiCaprio as a ruthless mercenary?


Looking forward to your reply. Join the culture jamming!
