“#000000” is a project that gathers five jewellery makers working in the field of Contemporary Jewellery. In spite of their clear individuality, these five male voices intersect in this project with one mutual condition: #000000, the hex value for black, refers to the complete absence of colour and is the common ground for the artists to explore the symbolic range of meanings attached to it.
#0000000 project was shown in Munich Jewellery Week 2019 and returns in 2020 with special invitees. Women’s voices are added to the conversation. Ten artists are now in dialogue around the colour black. Hints on concealing and protecting, the secretive and the unknown, strength and authority, elegance or sophistication are unveiled throughout the exhibition.
Coming from eight different countries, their works present distinct approaches and materials that shift from fashion to artistic expressions, from textile to charcoal, stone, fabric, plastic, leather, readymades or metalwork.
