Intro
Eva van Kempen (Rotterdam, the Netherlands, 1976) is an Amsterdam based jewellery designer. She studied at the vocational school of Goldsmiths in Schoonhoven and Amsterdam and studies under artists/teachers who work at the Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Her work evolved drastically when she was confronted with hospital materials and medicine. In 2015 she had a solo-exhibition in the hospital where she used to be a patient. Ralph Keuning, the director of Museum de Fundatie invited Eva to design jewellery for busts and portraits of sculptors whose work had been aquired down the years. This collaboration resulted in a museal solo exhibition in 2017

Statement

The inspiration for my jewellery lines "LifeLines" (2015) and "Ready-To-Bear" (2017) finds its origin in medical materials and medicine. With these jewels made from safe hospital waste, like out of date intravenous systems, superflous medicine or rejected hypodermic needles, I show the value and beauty of a somewhat grim world. I am fascinated and touched by what these manmade goods can prevent and provoke. With minimal interventions and by adding traditional materials used for jewellery, such as precious metals, diamonds and pearls, I seduce the viewer to look with new eyes.
Despite the fact that I started working with these materials as an attempt to accept certain events as well as my own mortality, I feel my ode to these products can help people to treasure them. While linking the inside and the outside of the body, adorning yourself with these jewels, becomes a means to celebrate the human body and life itself.
