Intro
By naming we make visible what is unseen in society. In our world, here, now, close to us and beyond our grasp, a myriad of unspeakable things happens. Worrisome, pleasurable, shameful, enslaving, freeing, painful, and vibrant things that finally do not allow us to be indifferent. This is the inspiration for our current exhibition. Collectively and individually we put everything on display, from gut reactions to well thought out responses to these sometimes nameless, often unmentionable details of our existence.

Caracú is a collective of South American jewellers and artists that resulted from the workshop De lo Plástico a lo Visual (From Plastic to Visual)  taught by Jorge Manilla, in Buenos Aires, Argentina. It has become a self-managed group in which each voice is heard in an ongoing, collaborative conversation. We consider contemporary jewellery as a complete artistic expression which enables us to create functional pieces, art objects, and installations. The private creation and collaborative result of our work allows us to continually consider our expression, our creative and technical processes, and the meaning of these as both individuals and individuals in a community

Reflected in the search for relevant materials and processes are internal explorations regarding our understanding and experience of existence and identity. From analyses of personal, natural, historical, social, political and discursive patterns to the raw distillation of form in pursuit of essence of culture or meaning of value, our pieces collectively echo the heterogeneous multiplicity that is life in South America by voicing the unheard, showing the unseen and surviving through solidarity.
