Intro
(...) the town’s permanent collection, consists of works acquired from exhibiting artists, showcases a large and noteworthy collection by contemporary jewellery artists from all over the world (...)
With the label « Town and Art Crafts » , the town of Cagnes-sur-Mer has been involved for over ten years, in an action that puts the spotlight on contemporary jewellery and the Solidor Art Space is exclusively dedicated to this art form. Every year a number of French and foreign artists of international renown are invited to exhibit within its walls.

Thus, the town’s permanent collection, which consists of works acquired from exhibiting artists, showcases a large and noteworthy collection by contemporary jewellery artists from all over the world : Japan, Russia, Finland, Nederland, Germany, Australia, Canada, France, Spain. All these makers are eminently recognized in the field of contemporary jewellery and it is a privilege for the town to have their work in its collection and to be able to exhibit them every year.

Recently, the collection was expanded with the latest acquisitions of pieces by Kadri Mälk, Tanel Veenre and Piret Hirv’s works from the exhibition “Regard sur l’Estonie”.

Far more than functional, aesthetic ornaments for the body, these jewels of unusual shapes and unexpected materials astound and stand alone as evocative works of art.

Labellisée « Ville Métiers d’Art », Cagnes-sur-Mer s’investit depuis plus de dix ans maintenant, dans la promotion du bijou contemporain. Les expositions se succèdent ainsi régulièrement à l’Espace Solidor, au pied du Château Grimaldi et accueillent de nombreux artistes français et étrangers de renommée internationale.

Aujourd’hui, le fonds permanent constitué d’œuvres originales acquises au fil de ces événements culturels, offre un regard unique sur le bijou et la création contemporaine. Composé d’or, de pierres précieuses, de métaux divers, de matières composites, de bois et même de papier, le bijou contemporain illustre la maîtrise et le talent des artistes qui le façonnent, au gré de leur inspiration, de leur culture et de leur sensibilité.

Récemment, la collection s’est enrichie avec les dernières acquisitions de Kadri Mälk, Tanel Veenre et Piret Hirv de l’exposition « Regard sur l’Estonie ».

Ces bijoux, qui dépassent la simple fonction esthétique d’ornement du corps sont à eux-seuls de véritables porteurs de message, aux formes surprenantes et aux matériaux insolites.
A découvrir de toute urgence !
