Intro
The Jewellery department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp in collaboration with the Jewellery department Sint Lucas Antwerpen and the object & Jewellery of MAD-Faculty Hasselt kindly invite you to the lecture of Nelli Tanner: In front of blank space and lost days.
Within the framework of the “Confrontations” lecture series organized by all departments of Jewelry Design/Silversmithing, Sint Lucas Antwerp, invites you to attend to a lecture being part of their research-project Afterschool.

Afterschool intends to offer a platform for knowledge-building and -exchanging in relation to the further professionalization within the field of contemporary jewelry. It therefore focuses on the different aspects of the artist’s practice and the requirements the designer or artist has for starting up this practice and/or for expanding it into a flourishing career.

The Jewellery department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp in collaboration with the Jewellery department Sint Lucas Antwerpen and the object & Jewellery of MAD-Faculty Hasselt kindly invite you to the lecture of Nelli Tanner: In front of blank space and lost days.

--------------------------

Time and space intertwines in many ways into my working.
I guess it has always done so but it came very present when moving to an old house in countryside in 2009.
It was full of household objects of the past.
Once functional objects, now broken, worn out, almost transparent but kept in the drawers or the attic.
Unknown, lost in meaning.

I started to collect somebody else's collection, translating the collection into my work.
Copying not only the forms, but ways of working.
Using an old-fashioned hand drill instead of an electric drill.
Using only a knife with the wood.
Going back into my own past and using stone as a material for jewellery.

My work is affected by the isolated fields and forests.
The lake that freezes in winter and creates a new space to walk.
White space.
Blank space.
