    Future

Olga Noronha

Human beings have created very contrasting and different ways for celebrating the body and therefore it is crucial to understand the jewelry piece, not only as an adornment or a fashionable accessory, but rather as a niche for political, sociological, scientifical, technological creation. The Future Room has been curated in a sense that it presents a big range of pieces that vary from highly technological items to very traditionally made items of either very mundane and worthless materials or very expensive and luxurious materials. The idea behind this curation was to create a sense of merging and yet define the boundaries and transitions between art, design, science and body modification for different disciplines that are very contrasting and that not always go along.

Human beings have created very contrasting and different ways for celebrating the body and therefore it is crucial to understand the jewelry piece, not only as an adornment or a fashionable accessory, but rather as a niche for political, sociological, scientifical, technological creation. The Future Room has been curated in a sense that it presents a big range of pieces that vary from highly technological items to very traditionally made items of either very mundane and worthless materials or very expensive and luxurious materials. The idea behind this curation was to create a sense of merging and yet define the boundaries and transitions between art, design, science and body modification for different disciplines that are very contrasting and that not always go along.

What will jewellery be like in the future? This room presents overviews and visions of the future through eight contrasting viewpoints that offer jewellery items from different contexts that challenge transitions between different disciplines, from art to body modifications, from design to science. A journey into the future steeped in inspiration, brilliant ideas and suggestions.

Pince-nez, Lacrima

Camille Moncomble
Besicles, Lacrima
2015, Paris
Gold, sapphire
Collection of the artist
120 x 30 mm

In Lacrima the preciousness of tears comes into question. An object of adornment that underlines the eyes, it evokes masks used in commedia dell’arte, suggesting ingenuity, naivety and disguise.
A lightweight flow-looking piece that leaves room for one’s poetry and imagination.

Collana, Attrazione/Avversione n. 3

Kerry Howley
Necklace, Attraction/Aversion no. 3
2011, London
Human hair, epoxy resin
300 x 350 mm
Collection of the artist

Through defamiliarising human hair, Kerry Howley generates a harmonious balance between attraction and aversion. By drawing together strands of hair to create elegant and delicate patterns, Howley turns discarded hair into beautiful and wearable neckpieces.

Conduttore di energia Energy Addicts

Naomi Kizhner
Energy Addicts – E-Pulse Conductor
2014, Israel
Gold and 3D-printed biopolymer
140 x 40 x 5 mm
Collection of the artist

Naomi Kizhner stresses jewellery as a means to explore the post-humanistic approach that sees the human body as a resource.
Energy Addicts – E-Pulse Conductor is part of a discursive and speculative invasive jewellery collection that converts kinetic energy from the body’s involuntary movements into electricity.

Anello di sale

Iona Brown
Ring, Salt Ring – 01
2017, London
Salt crystals, thread, 925 silver
60 x 70 mm
Collection of the artist

Also Iona Brown challenges the worth of material by making use of salt. Each piece is individual, assuming shapes that may emerge during the irregular process of salt crystallization. Despite the ordinary nature of salt (and/or sugar), each piece becomes unique for its unpredictability.

Sfera nei lombi

Naomi Filmer for Alexander McQueen
Ball in the Small of my Back –
presented in McQueen S/S 2002 Show “El Baile del Toro Retorcido,” Paris
2001, London
Silver plate on electro-formed copper, hand blown glass
280 x 280 x 230 mm

Taking reference from Flamenco dance and sculptor Jean Arp, Naomi Filmer continues to create jewellery that captures space and form of human anatomy.
Worn on Alexander McQueen’s S/S 2001 show, Ball in the Small of my Back captures the model’s hands positioned behind her back and, in doing so, pulls back her shoulders as the ball fills the space and the curve at the base of her spine. The object both dominates the model’s posture and celebrates the form of her body.

Anello, Linee primordiali 

Hilary Sanders
Ring, Primordial Lines 
2012, USA
Graphite
50 x 60 x 60 mm
Collection of the artist

Graphite has shown to be a potential material not just to write about, but also to write about with. Primordial Lines show a ring with doubled function that questions what the vehicle for communication is – the body, the media or the act in-between.
