Bella Neyman and Ruta Reifen of Platforma are teaming up with Kinga Zobel of Galerie Biro Junior for The Box. The Box will coincide with Schmuck, the largest annual international exhibition dedicated to contemporary art jewelry which takes place in Munich, Germany.

Artist list

Sofia Björkman, Réka Lörincz, Bruce Metcalf, Gisbert Stach, Demi Thomloudis, Timothy Veske-McMahon
The curators of The Box posed a unique challenge to a select group of artists. Take five readymade materials purchased at the dollar store and give value to something invaluable by creating three wearable pieces of jewelry. This challenge feeds into the contemporary jewelry artists’ interest in working with non-precious and alternative materials.
The group includes three American and three European artists. They are Bruce Metcalf, Timothy Veske-McMahon, Demi Thomloudis, Réka Lörinz, Sofia Björkman, and Gisbert Stach.
Each artist received a box containing five standard size white envelopes, a small white towel, three white erasers, three CDs, and a can of Diet Coke. The materials were chosen because they are all white and echo a metaphorical blank page. These items can also be manipulated in multiple ways which adds to the novelty of the project.
The Box exhibition will travel to the Center for Craft, Creativity, and Design in Asheville, North Carolina, from April 7- May 28, 2016 to coincide with SNAG NeXt. The (expanded) exhibition in Asheville will feature 4 additional artists.
