Intro
Sophie Hanagarth is a Swiss jewellery designer whose work plays with conventions, the rigidity of thought, and the difficulty of being open to something that deviates from the norm.
 
Hanagarth makes hidden parts of the body, often regarded as embarrassing or awkward, visible on the outside.Her work poses questions about the cultural and social construction of the body. The titles of her works, deliberately ironic, encourage reflection.  Steel, iron, leather, silicon and tin give male connotations, but by fashioning the material with a view to softness and smoothness of surface, Hanagarth focusses on femininity. The originality of the erotic and humorous approach to the jewel make her a much-discussed jewellery designer in Europe. / CODA MUSEUM, Netherlands, 2015.

Sophie Hanagarth (1968, Lausanne) has a degree in jewellery by the Academy of Applied Arts in Genebra and teaches jewellery design at the Academy of Arts du Rhin in Strasbourg and at AFEDAP in Paris, where she lives since 2002. Her work has been awarded with two of the most important prizes of contemporary jewellery: the Herbert Hofmann Prise in 2011 and the Françoise van den Bosch Award in 2014.
