Artist list

Manuel Vilhena, Castello Hansen
The Danish Castello Hansen and the Portuguese Manuel Vilhena met for the first time in 1993 when, by chance or destiny, they sat side by side in a room filled with four hundred students eager to start a new school year.

Having worked together on several occasions after their graduation from the Royal College of Art in London, they thought it could be interesting to present a selection of their work as a physical and synergistic result of the many hours spent thinking, talking and investigating together into matters of Contemporary Jewellery.

Albeit following different working procedures and separated by a distance of 2000 miles, the pieces of both authors, presented in this exhibition are bound, not by theme or concept, but by a somewhat shared ideological Jewellery background.
It is thus natural to find certain common aesthetic points, the juxtaposition of ideas and the use of similar materials: pure gold, strong colours, the body as canvas and platform of proportion for all the pieces.

This presentation of work is the quest for the equilibrium between Hansen’s musical perfection and Vilhena’s laidback poetics. The cool aurora of the Northern planes blended with the warm sunset of the Southern seas.

The work is presented without authorship claims, leaving the observer free to discover whom the author of a certain piece might be. Or, maybe that is unnecessary.
