Jewels in Play: Swiss Contemporary Jewelry Design Exhibition
The Embassy of Switzerland presents in cooperation with the Seoul Design Foundation (DDP) a Contemporary Jewelry Design Exhibition ‘Bijoux en jeu – Jewels in Play’ curated by mudac, Museum of Contemporary Design and Applied Arts, Lausanne, Switzerland.
The exhibition showcases 220 contemporary jewels from two Swiss public collections: the Swiss Confederation’s and the mudac’s own collection. 37 artists present their pieces realized between 1970 and 2013. The thematic presentation illustrated by the chapters: telling, adorning, using, shaping, making, offers a reading of the functions, uses, shapes, materials and techniques of contemporary jewelry.
This unique exhibition, which comes for the first time to Korea, is highlighted by a sleek scenography design that enhances the creativity and virtuosity of author’s jewelry.
