Artist list

Jasmin Matzakow
These painful physical interventions are carried out in a controlled and a ritualized setting. And, they provide protection on a physical and a magical level. In that process, and its result, they acquire great beauty which makes them accessible. By referencing the possibility of healing and growth after a painful experience, the jewellery itself also acquires transformational powers aimed at the future.
The necklaces form a protective shield, as well as a ‘weapon’ that can break power and create love.


Saturday 14 May, from 4 to 6 pm.
