Artist list

Peter Vermandere
Vermandere presents an installation consisting of a table full of magnifier lamps. Under these magnifiers one can see pieces of jewellery from different periods of his artistic career. Mostly brooches and some rings. Titles play an important role in his work: Freestyle Atomics, Hotton Wheels, Matchbox Label Collection, Cosmic Noise, Tintinnabulum…they all tell a part of the artistic story. Another important part are the materials: silver and gold, aluminium and (gem)stones. A fascination for stone has always been there and aluminium entered his work when he was offered an original panel from the Atomium, the iconic Expo 58 building in Brussels, when it was renovated in 2008.
