CP Projects Space at the School of Visual Arts is pleased to present Most Suitable, Most Valuable, curated by MA Curatorial Practice fellow Angie Nee.

 

When people introduce a precious piece of jewelry, they usually introduce it from two aspects: how expensive the material is and how well the craft is. Is the jewelries’ value only in these two aspects? For young conceptual jewelry artists, jewelry is a spiritual carrier, a bridge and a medium for communication from person to person. Jewelry making is tailored to individuals and personalities. In the making process, the artists pay attention to the relationship between jewelry and body, and they explore the value of jewelry in different kinds of relationships.

 

The relationship between people. The relationship between body and jewelry. The relationship between jewelry materials. Artists are more willing to use suitable materials than valuable materials. This seems to be true for any relationship: the most precious may not be most appropriate, but the most appropriate may be most precious.
