Intro
(...) Anya Kivarkis looks. She looks at how jewellery is worn. At what its wearers want to show. At what you actually see. On a photograph, some necklaces or earrings are partly hidden or distorted by the perspective; sometimes all you see is a smudge. Kivarkis uses her observations in her work: jewels that are about jewellery. (...)

Artist list

Anya Kivarkis
Artists peer behind our dreams; they shatter our illusions. Jewellery and dreams are good companions. Film stars on the red carpet sparkle with so many precious stones, but it is only show. The dress was borrowed from a famous fashion designer, the ornaments come from the vault of an impressive jeweller’s.

Thanks to the flashbulbs of the photographers, an Oscar award ceremony lives on into eternity: a world of images and illusions hovers about on the internet. It keeps dreams alive: Anya Kivarkis put them in the showcases for us to look at.
