The exhibition “WHERE I DRAW THE LINE” explores how contemporary jewellery artists from across the globe address one of the most important issues of our time: The moment where urbanity meets nature and does not leave nature unchanged.
As cities grow and urban infrastructure continues to take over the environment, the exhibition comments on the fragile relationship humanity maintains with the built and the natural world.
“WHERE I DRAW THE LINE” bridges this divide. Both the geometric shapes of manmade structures, metropolitan landscapes and the organic shapes of nature and vivid greenery, serve as major sources of inspiration for artists. Fusing natural patterns with sculptural geometries, the jewels displayed range from delicate organic forms, spiritual talismans to sculptural brooches and boldly textured rings. By playing with the perceived differences in the visual languages, it invites the viewer to examine their own fascinations with the cityscapes we live in and the countryside we like to escape to.
The jewels will be displayed alongside photographs by emerging photographer Michael Harald, who has created a series of images inspired by nature’s tranquillity and the urgency of city life, thereby asking the audience to consider their personal inspirations in the context of shifting values.
“WHERE I DRAW THE LINE” was curated by Katharina Kraus.
