Intro
During my artist residency in Suzhou, China in 2015/2016, I initiated the informal jewellery project "20 Ways To Wear A Necklace" to examine the creative aspect that can be found in the interplay of conformity and individuality against the background of the present mass and consumer culture in China and Europe. In V&V Gallery Vienna I'll continue this interactive jewellery project and I cordially invite all interested visitors to participate!​ / Susanne Hammer
