Intro
An exhibition by the collective «Not Only Decoration», proposed by ALLIAGES and Juan Riusech. Not Only Decoration (NOD) is a platform for art and design projects which focus on social and environmental issues. NOD is a collective intelligence, a not for profit organization of individuals and utilises their skills as jewellers, artists and makers to create meaningful art and design projects.

There are some places where beauty seems to be elusive. In some cities, a second look may be required to cast the spell that may haunt us forever. It might be because they reinvent and recycle themselves over and over again. Cities collection addresses the concept of layers, which refers to rebuilding and assembling. The project of reusing PET (polyethene terephthalate) disposable plastic bottles is aligned with the idea of enabling new opportunities in material that was created to be waste but whose destiny is forced to change when applied to jewelry, giving it new significance and permanence. This line of work searches for an aesthetic experience in a material that seems to be deprived of these qualities. However, its potential can be unfolded while working devotedly with it and granting it a second chance to exist. The collection depicts urban landscapes through one of the types of plastic waste widely generated in big cities: disposable bottles. In that spirit, urban scenes are created out of PET (polyethene terephthalate) from recycled plastic bottles.
/ Fabiana Gadano, Cities.

This project is the result of a reflection about the word “resistance”. I started writing down words that would make me think about this particular concept and from my list, I chose 12 words to make a collection of values to wear. Medals and decorations are given after a meritorious or outstanding service or achievement, but what if we have this values in a box ready-to-wear when we need them for the challenges of everyday life? Can values be really given or taken away? Can I decorate myself? Which one should I wear today?... Tomorrow? How many? Should I wear the value I’m missing or the one I think I have?
/ Ana Carolina Escobar, Decoration Kit to resist.

Inspired by Margaret Mead ‘s concept that it is culture and not biology that determines one’s individuality, I have worked with the male and female icons-symbols of gender stereotypes- and modified them to show how we change the sex roles assigned to us by society in many different ways. The classic symbols have been reshaped, cut, assembled together and sculpted to give them a new meaning of malleability. ”If we are to achieve a richer culture, rich in contrasting values, we must recognize the whole gamut of human potentialities, and so weave a less arbitrary social fabric, one in which each diverse human gift will find a better place,” said Margaret Mead in the 30s and still absolutely true.
/ Hebe Argentieri, Icons.
