The Exhibition

“Building Jewellery ," the contemporary jewellery exhibition will be showing works of 6 artists from Taiwan, Costa Rica, USA, Australia, Germany and Netherlands. This exhibition explores how the concept of architecture and built environment embedded in contemporary jewellery. Architecture is a discipline beyond buildings, physical space and structure. Today its idea crosses boundaries, to fashion, kitchenware and even jewellery. Architecture is a way to see and perceive the world. It lays out the foundation on how human relate to nature, man‐made environment and to each other.

The jewellery pieces presented are related to architecture from different perspectives. Not only are the architectural forms being translated into a wearable object, but the concept of these exhibits is about relationship of architecture and human being. The contrast of scale between jewellery and building, and their impact on the human body are some of the ideas that audience would think about.

Artist Talk
Speaker:

Gloria Ng ‐ Hong Kong based jewellery artist and art educator (http://www.insinuo.com/)
This artist talk will share the insights about contemporary jewellery: how is it different from other kind of jewellery we usually see, and why artists pick jewellery as the medium for their work.

Karen Lau – Hong Kong based architect and jewellery maker (www.kagamistudio.com)
Karan will be sharing her experience and journey, from being an architect to a jeweller.

The Workshop

Ame Gallery invites 6 Hong Kong‐ based architects and interior designers to join this workshop. The objective of this workshop is to see how their architectural knowledge influence their creativity in another discipline, and let the participants experience the process of creating contemporary jewellery.

Lead by local jewellery artist Gloria Ng, first part of the workshop will help the participants to develop a concept based on the topic Body’s Architecture. Then they will create the piece of wearable object on their own at JC Work Place with the help of John Chong, the instructor at JC Work Place in TST.
