This exhibition represents the creative output of Slovak artists who are gradually approaching middle age and belong with the so-called “Generation of Husák’s children”. The jewellery objects designed by Jana and Petr Machata are accompanied by photographs made by Petr Ančic. Each one of this trio of artists reflects their childhood lived against a prefab housing skyline. The selection of fifty pieces of jewellery that maps out two decades of the artists’ work documents the power of jewellery to carry a message.
