Artist list

Larissa Cluzet, Cleo Van Woensel
Larissa Cluzet and Cleo Van Woensel, the 2 Master graduates in Jewellery Design from Sint Lucas Antwerp presented their body of work in the installation - A Reliable Object and 250m Of Curb Chain.
Larissa Cluzet. Necklace: A reliable object - the 24 carats necklace, 2018. Carob dough, fine gold.. 45 x 20 x 2 cm. Photo by: Manu De Caluwe. The Mediterranean carob tree produces seeds known to have a steady weight from one to another, which is the reason why they were used as a standard to weight precious stones. If the scales have replaced the seeds, we still nowadays talk about carat to describe the mass of a gemstone. By extension, we also talk about carat to define the purity of a gold alloy. This story has been a starting point to talk about the economic value which concerns especially jewelry, from a material perspective. A reliable object is based on researches about the carob plant connected to jewelry and trade. It explores various stories in which materials are characters while the language uses measurements technologies.. Larissa Cluzet

Cleo Van Woensel. Installation: 250m Of Curb Chain, 2018. Photo by: Sam De Herdt. From series: 250m Of Curb Chain. In this work, the link chain, one of the most known archetypes of the jewellery scene, occupies a prominent position. Sewing thread is replaced by a silver-plated link chain in a conventional set of clothing that consists of a jacket, trousers, a shirt and a skirt. The garments are hand sewn in a chequered textile. The lockstitch out of link chain becomes a ‘construction’ that simultaneously connects textile, jewellery and the human skin. This is how the 250m-curb chain becomes more than a shimmering decoration. It is an essential, functional material in the construction of the fabric.. Cleo Van Woensel
