Artist list

Marc Monzó
"Sun" is the title of a group of pendants. These pieces are made of 18k, 0,08mm thick gold sheet. They are stable and wearable in spite of their extreme thinness thanks to the rigidity created by the folding process.

I have wanted to make a series of gold pieces which would address their own materiality for a long time. "Sun" is an attempt to synthesize all the caracteristics of gold which have seduced me. The technique I applied combines an expression of its physical qualities and a strong visual representation of what gold means to me.

The way these pieces were made is significant. Once the metal was laminated and polished, I worked on each piece at a basic desk, using usual, daily items as tools. Cutting metal with regular scissors, using a simple compass or ruler to mark out it's area and imprint it's surface really made me feel like a jeweller.
