Intro
Contemporary Jewellery languages between experimentation and the Post-Natural. Creativity Oggetti, an avant-garde place for art and design, is pleased to present MateriaMetamorphosis, a project curated by Susanna Maffini and Paola Stroppiana: fourteen authors of contemporary jewellery coming from 12 different countries were selected for their ability of combining refined poetic languages with the careful research of materials often brought beyond their limits thanks to daring experiments and new technologies.

Artist list

Raluca Buzura, Clara Del Papa, Gésine Hackenberg, Satomi Kawai, Anna Król, Seulgi Kwon, Jounghye Park, Daniella Saraya, Nicole Schuster, Rita Soto, Luca Tripaldi, Flóra Vági, Snem Yildirim, Corrado de Meo
In the work of these selected authors it is possible to identify an ideal red thread that characterizes their research: the personal and unique relationship between the alchemist-artist and the materials used; material that can be mineral, vegetable, fabric, precious or synthetic. It is simultaneously both the subject and the creative tool: the artist follows or breaks down the inside laws of rhythm and reproduces them in a completely new form through a process of experimentation, suspense and surprise. The rhythm is suggested by Nature itself: there is the rhythm in a flower, in the micro-animal, in the moving body, in the mineral world: the ornament is understood in its functional relationship with the body and its collocation as object in space, both final expression of its becoming. Nature is not seen as a catalogue of forms to be reproduced, but is considered as a constant, unstable state of structural and metaphysical change, perhaps even poetic. Thus the jewel imitates nature's expressions in its transitional manifestations and explores the details, the spots, the debris, the lacerations, the materials that aggregate casually and wear out in time or due to chemical agents; but also by proposing synthetic materials that narrate a Post-Natural dimension, where the natural recreated in-lab is truer than the truth and harmoniously coexists with genuinely raw materials.

The exhibition is complemented with a bilingual catalogue reviewed by Paola Stroppiana. All photos therein are the work of Federica Cioccoloni, a photographer from Rome who has for years been collaborating with Creativity Oggetti. On this occasion she has created a photographic campaign in constant dialogue with the exhibits, enhancing the research of every artist.
