. Fake it till you make it! Do keep this aphorism in mind while looking at the project @jewelleryli(k)es. Within the project, jewellery is seen as a social lie inspired by Instagram as a (social) medium. Pia David plays with the idea that everything can be used as a part of the image. Instagram takes centre stage.  The white lie lies in the analogue translation of the Instagram fake. This is expressed in three groups of work: painted two-dimensional jewellery, pieces with quotes for the sane and sensible and glass ‘filters’ as adornment for the world surrounding us.

Intro
Pia's critical, yet humoristic jewellery collection questions the way we present ourselves on Instagram, and the way this changes our perceived social status and world-view.  She recreates some of the most widely used types of images on Instagram in real-life, using meticulous and time-consuming manual techniques. Deceptive trompe-l’oeil effects make the jewellery appear different in images from what they are in reality. A second, more thorough look is necessary to spot the deception. Through her jewellery, she comments on how we spend a lot of our precious time creating a picture-perfect, superficial online profile, while hiding the true depths of our everyday reality. / Dr. Tine De Ruysser
