What is the cosmos? Infinite space and time constitute the cosmos. In this enormous world. Who am I? Where am I from? Where am I heading? All living creatures are spiritual and seraphic, intelligent and marvelous. Meanwhile, despite all these, it’s always difficult to tell the origin of our own, what do we look like? We keep on searching for the answers our whole life, just like a wild gull seeking shelter on the sea. The cosmos moves in a endless cycle, all the spirits advancing with the passage of time. The static is relative. There is nothing permanent except change. The echoes of the cosmos are the response we can obtain while having conversations with it. Meanwhile, we probably hear the inner voice through the exchange.

Exactly as demonstrated by this exhibition, art, aesthetics, nature, philosophy: all the feelings experienced by these artists, and the ultimate secrets hiding inside their works, remain to be discovered.

About the Exhibition:
The jewellery exhibition adopts the trendiest online exhibition format nowadays. With the emerging VR technology, it provides a more abundant audio-visual experience. Four young outstanding artists in the international contemporary jewellery industry, Laura Forte, Agustina Ros, Bianca Chong, and Jiayi Lao, through their artefacts, explore the relationship between the universe and human beings, philosophy and art.


About Artists' Work:
Laura Forte:
Her research focuses mainly between matter and emptiness. Her works are in fact conceived as void spaces to be filled. Space is intended as a communicative vehicle, as a factor capable of generating an aesthetic, as well as the materialization of a timeless time. She considers the emptiness as necessary as the silence to activate that part of us that has easier access to fantasy, intuition, overall vision, lateral thinking.

Agustina Ros: artist from Misiones, Argentina, currently she opened her own studio in Barcelona, Spain. She seeks to combine, through the glass, the sensitivity of art and the resolution of design. Her jewellery is crafted with borosilicate glass, modelled and blown by the technique of flameworking. Some pieces are worked with fine metal fuming (gold and silver), and carved and polished, which generates a faceted surface, looking for light reflection.

Bianca Chong: Her design is inspired by the fluidity of natural beings and the structural mechanics of architecture. She seeks the balance between the two ends of organic and synthetic matters to build poetic jewellery that flows along the body.

Jiayi Lao: I believe that our heart chooses the world we see. This serie of works aims to create a space for self-meditation, in this world full of "gaze" and "attention”. Through the reflection of the double mirrors, the reflected image overlaps with the inner space, and the viewer sees their own gaze.
