26th Legnica International Jewellery Competition IDENTITY

 

S. Gackowska i F. Sala

 

 

 

Sara Gackowska & Federica Sala ‘MERGING

Place: Legnica Culture Center, Chojnowska 2

Exhibition open till: 11th June 2017

 

Two contemporary jewellery artists speak together through their pieces, making them clash into one. Differences and distances get deleted to show a game between uniqueness and replicas. Glass and stones are explored by two different voices to finally become one. The materials are shaped and changed to confuse you. Merging ideas, places, materials, concepts, minds, thoughts and jewellery. Together. A pure jewellery concert of two sides of what seems to be the same soul. But it’s not. Sara Gackowska and Federica Sala have been working together for the first time. At this exhibition they are presenting a selection of pieces from their latest collections together with collaboration pieces that resulted from the merging experiment.
