Intro
In his work Marc Monzó tries to capture the essence of things. He limits himself to simple interventions and singular actions; in the process curiosity and amazement compete for priority. How do materials behave, what changes during their processing?

Marc Monzó
In his work Marc Monzó tries to capture the essence of things. He limits himself to simple interventions and singular actions; in the process curiosity and amazement compete for priority. How do materials behave, what changes during their processing? What is the effect of applying certain shapes and finishes?

For his 'Wall' brooches Monzó saws copper sheet into small rectangles and reunites them using silver solder. The process of destruction and assembling is no superfluous endeavour: 1 plus 1 becomes 3. The pattern that appears refers to archetypical masonry, and in reaction, a whole range of elementary architectural shapes emerge. The images call forth images, and so a basic intervention opens a shutter in the brain and stimulates our imagination.

Monzó reflects on the essence of jewellery. The future owner of a piece can enjoy joining in with the process and, while wearing it, the onlookers can also participate. It isn't the artist's principal goal to decorate, but rather to investigate and enhance our world.
