Intro
Tools and everyday objects revisited by contemporary jewelry in the digital era.

Artist list

Lisa and Scott Cylinder, Guillaume Delaperriere, Juanjo Garcia Martin, Robert Mazlo, Xavier Monclús, Jo Pond, Katja Prins, Quars d’una, Fabrizio Tridenti
Conceived as a tribute, this collective exhibition questions the close relationships existing between the artists and tools. How do they relate to these universal objects, whose shapes, designs, uses have often remained unchanged, through the centuries?
From initiation to hybridization, through fetishization and recycling, each artist invites to rethink the tool and everyday objects in the light of his/her personal practice but always as an instrument of liberation and mediation between humans and their environment.
The exhibition also raises the issue of the perpetuation of handmade know-hows in a time of increasing dominance of machinery and other advanced technologies. Are hand tools doomed to disappear? Do they have to adapt to changes and how? What are the possible consequences of these evolutions on our consumption modes?
