Intro
The launch of this new exhibition provides an opportunity for cultural exchange and appreciation of the Czech Republic's contemporary design scene in Korea. Lovers from Prague, Czech Jewellery, organized jointly with the Embassy of the Czech Republic to Korea, is curated by Elaine Kim, Deputy director of the World Jewellery Museum.
The exhibition presents the two tendencies that are taking place in the Czech jewellery scene. Garnet is one of the oldest chronicled gemstones and has been held in high esteem for over 5000 years. The Czech Republic is the place where the "Pyrope" variety of garnets can be found, which has the deepest fiery red color of the entire garnet family. The historical traditions of Bohemian garnet jewellery are carried on by Granát Turnov, and the syndicate's creations are highly appreciated by lovers of Bohemian garnet from all over the world. From the 1960s there has been a new breed of Czech artists testing the boundaries of art and challenging the public with their revolutionary concepts of jewellery. The jewellery works created by the five invited artists bear witness to both the time and place of their making and testify these artists' deep commitment to artistic freedom of expression.
