Intro
Three masters of research jewellery, three artists have been asked to select a younger artist to set up a dialogue with: the exhibition is thus driven by a “spirit of dialogue”. Not merely “talking with” but “thinking with”, “being bound by thought”: a dialogue based on the desire to understand and know the other, and to propose an approach to the reality of the research jewel through a spirit of discovery.
The 2010’s edition of PREZIOSA presents three masters of research jewellery: tree artists, three different nationalities, a geographical line leading from North to South: Netherlands, Switzerland, Italy. Three artists who have been working for around forty years, pursuing paths that are totally different, each with a complex language, a personal and characteristic Kunstwollen, despite sharing a marked spirit of research and experimentation. The common elements to be found in their works, in different declensions, are change, metamorphosis and transformation. They also share the fact that they belong to the same generation, that they are established, recognised artists with a long experience as teachers behind them, while at the same time representing three different approaches to research in jewellery.

The three artists have been asked to select a younger artist to set up a dialogue with: the exhibition is thus driven by a “spirit of dialogue”. Not merely “talking with” but “thinking with”, “being bound by thought”: a dialogue based on the desire to understand and know the other, and to propose an approach to the reality of the research jewel through a spirit of discovery.

Each of the six artists will offer a broad and inclusive presentation of his own work, and develop dialogues between different generations, languages and contents. This relationship of dialogue will make it possible to develop broader reflections on the creative reality of the jewel, its history and its present.
The public will be able to approach the work of the six artists through the various phases of their work, listening to the conversations and reflections triggered by the encounters, and also by reading the “dialogue” in the works themselves. The public will be provided with the necessary information, while also leaving room for a personal interpretation and, above all, an emotional engagement.
The layout and the catalogue will visualise the dialogues between the various artists, exploiting multimedia tools, so that they can be viewed and enjoyed by the public.
