Please join us on Saturday 26 June at 2 pm for a floor talk with exhibition curator Simon Cottrell and participating artist Kristina Neumann to unpack how each of the artists' diverse approaches addresses distinct ideas within the broad overarching aims of the show. Simon and Kristina will then discuss with attendees the core social and cultural foundations of 'what' and 'why' jewellery?
Body Layer; Semblance and Self presents the works of 11 significant Australian and International artists who have ‘unpacked’ the semblance of self through jewellery, as a highly focused activity of visualising, materialising and articulating possibilities of self-knowing. Communicating extremely diverse liminal qualities, traits, or viewpoints of what it is to be a living social human. Once willfully applied/connected to the relationally active body of a wearer, the nuanced signifiers within these works activate a communication of self, on self. This highly specific action is at the fundamental core of, what is jewellery.
