Intro
What is contemporary jewelry? Does it have to be pretty? Can jewelry electrocute you? How can a necklace campaign for saving the ecosystem of Tillamook rainforest and how can a brooch talk about Soviet childhood in Slovakia? All these and many more questions are answered in a new exhibition produced by curatorial collective “9 March Project”, whose goal is to promote the contemporary jewelry field in Russia

Katia Rabey, Masha Starikova, and Alexandra Pavlovskaya, the curators of the project, do everything in their power to prove to Russian viewers that conceptual jewelry is an art form no less legitimate than painting or sculpture, its main difference is the fact that jewelry artist’s work can be tried on – literally and metaphorically.
The previous “9 March Project” show exhibited works inspired by the questions of feminism and gender stereotypes – this year however the unique selection of more than 60 participating artists from 20 countries is presenting wearable works dedicated to the subject of borders. This show was first seen in the city of Krasnoyarsk, Siberia, and will be now seen in the Winzavod Contemporary Art Center Moscow.

The subject of borders – between countries and cities, but also between identities – is not new for jewelry art, but each artist finds a new way to express themselves through it. For example, Nga Ching Ko from China creates brooches out of a three-dimensional piling-up of the words “Chinese” – for her, it’s a way to reflect upon her identity as a citizen of autonomous Hong Kong. Dania Chelminsky from Israel creates prickly brooches that refer to Prickly Pear Cactus, a plant that had once migrated to Israel from Mexico, as the artist herself had. Anna Chervonnaya from Russia in one necklace combines floral embroidery and brutal construction referring to a typical kind of concrete fence – her work talks about industrial barriers that were originally conceived to separate us from the mess of construction, ended up separating us from nature. Each artist decides for themselves how and where they will cross the double yellow line.

Outside of Russia the field of contemporary jewelry had been a part of contemporary art practice for a few decades, finding its well-earned places in museums and galleries. This field has its respected masters and stars, and the curatorial team of “9 March Project” is proud to show works of such well-known names in the jewelry world as Ruudt Peters (Netherlands), Felieke van der Leest (Norway), and Jana Machatova (Slovakia) that were never exhibited in Russia before.
The exhibition is being organized with the support of the Embassy of Israel, Culture Buzz Israel, and Mikhail Prokhorov Foundation.
