Artist list

Gijs Bakker
“REAL” is a series of jewelries that are hybrids of found costume jewels and handmade fine jewelries. “REAL?” is created by a process of destruction and distortion of existing jewels made of glass. Those pieces confuse viewers whether they are fake or real jewelry, causing questions about values of authenticity in a very elegant way.
