European Triennial of Contemporary Jewellery 2014

Lecture Day: Jewellery Object: For your eyes only?
Beneath the onlooker’s gaze, a work calls forth sensations and generates meaning. The observer’s sensibilities and imagination are stimulated by the object: its materials, dimensions, shapes, colours, surroundings... Brought together, all these elements cause the public both to understand the creator’s personal interpretation of jewellery and to pause, reflect and form their own opinions.

How does the public perceive this experience? And how does the creator apprehend and feel the viewer’s gaze? These questions will be tackled in the lectures given alongside the exhibition.

This day will be devoted to a series of lectures aimed both at professionals and at knowledgeable amateurs.
