Intro
This retrospective, which includes an interview with the artist and a text by the Swedish critic Love Jönsson, showcases some 50 works through still life photographs that interweave shapes, colours, materials and textures.
Marc Monzó Jeweler is the first monograph by the new publishing imprint Klimt02 Publishers, an initiative that aims for the first time to publish trilingual editions (Catalan-Spanish-English) in Spain of work by a group of international creators of contemporary jewellery.

Exhibitions, awards, presentations and publications all over the world endorse the stunning career and international renown of Marc Monzó, who has been producing avant-garde, maverick, open, provocative and subtle work for ten years.

This retrospective, which includes an interview with the artist and a text by the Swedish critic Love Jönsson, showcases some 50 works through still life photographs that interweave shapes, colours, materials and textures, other images where jewels are set against each other or against everyday objects and, last of all, snapshots of them being worn, showing them in their truest dimension.

Remarks

(…) “This is jewelry for the street, the shop, the club, and the home, rather than the highbrow gallery or a museum. The desire to overcome the conventions of jewelry is also reflected in his attempts to obscure or level out the value of the materials, as when grouping plastics and precious metals together and covering them with the same monochromatic paint. In such series of pieces, Marc Monzó playfully creates new families out of apparently disparate materials and objects, paying not much heed to previously established categories. “
(…) “If there is a logic to it, it is the puzzling logic of dreams; small becomes big, big becomes small, objects change colour or position in a slightly absurd fashion. A ring is adorned with a set of other rings, another ring is magnified and made into a brooch, yet another ring is placed around the stem of a glass. Pins with multicoloured spherical plastic heads, as if fresh out of a notice board, take on the character of earrings; a largish sphere -a ping-pong ball- is carefully covered with silver and paint and turned into a brooch.”
(…) “What the artist and his jewelry present to us is a world in fragments that become symbolically scattered, shuffled, perhaps strewn on like confetti on our clothes.”

Jönsson, Love: “Investigating the everyday. Marc Monzó and the world of things”. From the book Marc Monzó Jeweler.

Why now for the book?
Life is incomplete by nature. I aim for my pieces to reflect this circumstance.
I am keen for my jewels to insinuate what they are. I work with what is essential, to the
point of insipidity. The pieces must then invite the user to complete them, through the use made of them by each person.
I often need to make sets of jewels to explain an idea, a vision. Breaking down the individuality of the subject in order to understand it. Destroying. Each jewel forms part of a set that remains open. Now, after ten years, I feel the need to group my finished work together, recreating the same exercise but from another plane, in order to be able to observe it and look beyond. Grouping my work together enables me to continue.
