26th Legnica International Jewellery Competition IDENTITY

 

Six Group

 

Why GROUP SIX?

Because we like it,
because we can,
because we care
...and we cry out for acclaim.

Group six exists from 2001. Its members join interest in the experimental, conceptual and avant-garde jewellery. Exhibition 6:10 is presenting works from last 3 last years and from 3 thematic exhibitions: Song `10, the Game and the Jewellery supposed to be beautiful.

This is another love song about death
This exhibition deal with the most explored cultural theme. Were artists likely to come close to a Shakespearean tragedy or, more probably, a telenovela.

Game
In each group played player whom were arbitrarily labelled roles – etiquette, artists or artisans. Every player has a full creative freedom and the game was not necessarily a teamwork.

Jewellery must be beautiful, if not intelligent at least
To the exhibition were invited 5 women – Hanna Hedman, Susanne Klemm, Aneta Lis-Marcinkiewicz, Adrianna Lisowska and Marta Schoeneck.
The exhibition assumes exploring gender jewellery. By this we mean the impression that occasionally appears at the first touch with an object which seems either feminine or masculine. This impression is directly attributed to the object and not related to the author’s gender. It rather derives from the used technique or the work subject.
