Here's a few pictures of a show I was apart of in Munich in the jewellery festival they have there each year. There's a main hall were some exhibitions take place and all over the city there's exhibitions in shops, galleries and unusual buildings.
I exhibit with the group dialogue collective, last few years we have exhibited in a working foundry but this year we had a new venue. The building has 5 live-in studios and since the building was built in the 19th century it is only rented to craft makers. The current tenants have been there for 20 years, here is a few pics of the building....
I really liked the staircase, so requested to show my work there... We named our show 'Home and Away' and had to make 2 pieces of work to represent the theme.
The way I approached the subject was to look at 'home and away' like 'life and death'. I used imagery and symbols associated to death memorabilia, such as the angel and flowers and made pins so the pieces became a remembrance of a life in the same way 'mourning jewellery' was used in the victorian times.
My second part of the exhibition was these bells, i did make some for the shop over the christmas period, but these bells are all different sizes and has different quotes that are memorable to different people I want to remembered.
Don't forget that jessie is exhibiting her ware's in the Selvedge spring fair this weekend......
