Liquid Time

Blog post
Published: 01.02.2014





The Liquid Time exhibition reflects more than two decades of the metalwork and jewellery studio’s activity at the Academy of Fine Arts and Design in Bratislava. The studio was founded in 1991 by Slovak sculptor and jeweler Anton Cepka.

Since the mid—1990s, the studio has been led by architect Karol Weisslechner, whose conception is captured by its current name, Studio S+M+L_XL METALWORK and JEWELRY. This name communicates the idea that the field of jewelry making has no boundaries. Students’ projects range from wearable objects to installations exceeding the scale of the human body, and the studio produces unique works as well as design concepts. The current of exhibited objects forms a sort of depository of ideas and concepts, which is supplemented over the years. The installation in an open shelf construction attests to the “liquid” time of studies and of encounters, during which young artists blaze the long trail from childhood to adulthood.

The common past of Slovak and Czech artistic jewellery, represented first and foremost by the doyen of Czechoslovak production, Anton Cepka, and the purely contemporary collaboration among artists of the youngest generation are presented in an accompanying installation, which will enrich the permanent exhibition of the Museum of Decorative Arts in Prague for the duration of the “Liquid Time” project. This exhibition’s historic works and timeless themes have provoked both profound and mild reactions from artists.

On exhibition co-operated Karol Weisslechner, Viera Kleinova, Matus Cepka, Kristyna Spanihelova, Maria Nepsinska, Petra Matejovicova and others.
