Intro
Der Schmuck Salon presents a selection of student work from the department Jewellery/Silversmithing - Sint Lucas Antwerpen, Belgium.
Der Schmuck Salon reveals an atmosphere of atopia: a feeling that things are out of place, in unusual combinations. The domestic elements and jewellery pieces seem to be traces of a world that never existed and never will, but one that still appears to be recognisable. The materials and forms act as familiar, but at the same time they surprise us and fill the spectator with wonder. They are abstracted images, indicating and suggesting a mental space. The mirrors, tables, cupboards and chairs, as well as the jewellery, are apparent elements of reality, referring to another reality. One might compare the domestic traces and jewellery with the building blocks of a still life: objects that are carefully arranged as an artistic stage, shifting away from real life. 

The exhibition "Der Schmuck Salon" which is part of our research project UnScene, presents a selection of student work from the department Jewellery/Silversmithing - Sint Lucas Antwerpen, Belgium.
