Remains of the feast


"Remains of the feast" is an interactive installation signed by Assamblage Association where contemporary jewelry and new media become mirrors of a consumer and waste society. The topic of the project is the legend of King Midas, whose desire to turn everything he touches into gold dooms him. This is perhaps one of the most representative metaphors for contemporary society. Restoring Midas's mythical table, in a lush, golden setting, we discover what we leave behind a "feast" where we have exhausted all our resources.


In a time when fast-fashion has become the world's second polluting industry after the oil companies, when we spend more money on diets than it would be necessary to feed the entire starving population of the planet and the extinction rate of some species of plants and animals due to human actions exceeds historical records, the exhibition raises questions about responsibility and action.


Assamblage - The National Association for Contemporary Jewelry and was launched in May 2015 during Romanian Design Week, as a result of a 7-year project of sustaining, developing and structuring the emerging field of contemporary jewelry. Assamblage is the main and most active platform in Romania dedicated to the craft and design of jewelry as an independent art form, contributing to the cultural context of the past few years to the increased activity in the field of jewelry in close connection to related fields such as architecture, product design, fashion and visual arts.
