Contemporary jewellery finds a new vibrant platform: Brussels. Bringing together established and emerging artists, collectors, and the international public, the European capital hosts its first jewellery week: ten days of exhibitions, awards, conferences, and workshops will take you on a lively tour of incredible venues and people. Embrace the multicultural, inclusive atmosphere of Brussels to discover the best in contemporary jewellery.
IN FIERI: the thin line between being made and becoming.
In the artistic practice of the late 20th century, we have started to gain insight into the humbling nature of creative processes. Every creation is a transformation, a becoming, not only of matter, but of the artist as well. We are injected with inspiration through the subject. Matter makes us better. We are constantly becoming, underway to existence as toward a full-grown concept, a finalized form, although not often reached. So what are we becoming when we create? Is contemporary jewellery a medium that helps us in accomplishing our transformations? Do the materials we use change us? Or do we change materials?
In Fieri is the exact state where being made and becoming tellingly overlap.

On the occasion of the first Brussels Jewellery Week, we invite you to the ever-changing city of Brussels to experience and be part of In Fieri.
