Theme : “Grand Tour – the colors of the journey”
“Grand Tour – the colors of the journey” This year’s theme is a tribute to the era of the travel for the discovery of art, architecture, and beauty and for the self-knowledge, through a journey of personal and cultural enrichment. We propose the theme of the journey, meaning it not only as a real experience but also as a dream, referring to the nineteenth-century Grand Tour.
We would like to set off with you, master goldsmiths, artists, goldsmiths, and designers of jewelry, on a unique itinerary to discover the destinations of your most beloved journeys, the destinations that made you leave your safe nests to then come back to it more aware and richer. In this period traveling without constraints is not yet possible, so it will be the contemporary jewel to make us dream and to accompany us in your travel stories... "with a flowing rhythm of life in the heart". Thanks to you and to your creativity we can live a modern grand tour, a unique experience that like the current technology makes us go everywhere, especially in this period of imposed boundaries: a sustainable, responsible, and conscious tourism.
When you think about a journey made which has remained in your hearts and memories, probably the colors and atmospheres of the places visited are the first things that come to mind. The memory often brings the desire to travel again and is almost always accompanied by the gesture of browsing through the photo albums, whether they are stocked in the roll of the phone or printed. Then there is almost always a detail, a glimpse or an expression to give us a suggestion and to bring us back to those places.
With this third edition of the Premio Incinque Jewels, we want to celebrate the feelings aroused by the Beauty of the places dear to you and we want to do it through a Jewel. This intent will lead to the realization of the work, which will be the expression of the emotions experienced during a journey made, through shapes, materials, colors. The color in this case is not only intended as a chromatic aspect but also as perception and/or a feeling, which you would like to convey with your jewel. No limits to your imagination even when it comes to a journey, this can be both real and a dreamlike tale: a lived experience that has made possible the estrangement from everyday reality by lulling the mind. The inspiration of the jewel, in addition to the emotions and in addition to the memory of noises, scents, colors of the places visited, must be linked to an image that can be: a photo taken, a drawing or even a work of art, to be attached with the project you want to realize. We, therefore, invite all the creatives of the jewelry world to retrace their travels and try their hand at this artistic project, giving space to your most intimate interpretation.
The collective exhibition will be the result of a careful selection of goldsmith artistic creations by a jury of experts in the field.
