Mari Ishikawa

Since 2005, PREZIOSA is the important exhibition dedicated to Research Jewellery, designed, organized and managed by Le Arti Orafe, the academy for contemporary jewellery based in Florence. The 2011 edition presents the retrospective exhibition dedicated to Mari Ishikawa and the side exhibition PREZIOSA YOUNG 2011. The two section of PREZIOSA 2011 will be housed in the "Tribune Galileo" at the Museum of “La Specola”, in Florence.


The work of Mari Ishikawa expresses a deep fascination with the natural world. With a look full of charm, the artist observes nature and manages to infuse the magic in her photographs and her jewellery, as Moon Light Shadow, In The Shadow Of A Tree, Clouds. The natural spectacle is experienced in its most intimate and small ravines, in the form of branches, the tangle of a shoot, the emergence of a delicate inflorescence. In her works throughout the poem takes the form of a feeling of nature as a living entity, palpitating, perpetual, and in her cycle of birth, growth, development. 

The exhibition is curated by Maria Cristina Bergesio.
