Intro
Assuming an alleged interiority, as an intimate relationship with the world, the present exhibition enshrines jewelry as an object that formulates codes and syncretic gestures. Such common action regarding the invention and construction of adornment items composes the spontaneous means of ingenuity in a continuous renovation. In this way, combining differences and similarities, two artists approach the borders of jewellery as an adventure that deviated from its first meaning.

Artist list

Hugo Bernardo, Pedro Sequeira
In this group of objects everything is visible: the materials and how they are constructed and fixed to form a piece of jewellery. There are no specialized jewelry tricks, skills or techniques: so the gesture I make is the comprehensive gesture for the general public. We can all relate to this gesture because everyone is able to do it and fully understand it: this is its poetic side: a simple strategy that mirrors the complex phenomenon that has always been jewellery and adornments. In my work, I prefer jewellery that integrates a simple and accessible gesture to a wider audience: one that communicates ideas that this audience recognizes and has for itself.
/Pedro Sequeira, 2021

 
The constellation of a visual collage as symbolic, expresses the desire to map the world through the metaphor of a miniaturized collection. A gesture of containing the precious essence of things, icons materialize that part of a whole that together composes itself. The act of preserving or crystallizing the memory of life. Such a notion is in fact the intent of the work, the holistic conception that encompasses everything in its inclusive complementarity around its talismanic value. In this way, a dreamlike and improbable dwelling emerges, an imaginary place of comic and allusive gestures. Forms of a game dedicated to an extensive, playful and inexplicable force.
