Intro
The 8th edition of the New Talents Award by Klimt02 aims to recognize the work of graduate students in our field by supporting their careers in the professional world. Nominated by our school members, one of the selected graduates will win the New Talents Award.

"Mockarchy" humorously re-distributes power, giving authority to the streets. Grace Miell's labour-intensive processes challenge ideas about what is valuable, what is discarded, and what is recyclable.
 
Name of graduation student: Grace Miell.
Name of guiding teacher:  Lin Cheung.


Nominated by Central Saint Martins, BA (Hons) Jewellery Design.
Grace’s final-year graduate collection combines social and political observation, high-level craftsmanship and humour. Her key materials are the steel capsules discarded on London streets, left over from nightlife excess. Using great patience and skill, Grace developed techniques to reuse and re-appropriate the canisters to create Jewellery objects and built a context and narrative to ask the viewer and the wearer questions of value and meaning.
/Giles Last. Course Leader.


The statement of the artist:
Subversive in its nature, Mockarchy overturns the idea of who gets to wear a crown. By appropriating the regal image of crown jewels, but making them out of found laughing gas canisters, Grace’s collection humorously re-distributes power, giving authority to the streets. In this reimagined context, the crown takes on a new symbolic meaning rooted in punk and anti-establishment sentiment. Grace’s labour-intensive processes challenge ideas about what is valuable, what is discarded, and what is recyclable.
