Crafts Magazine Guide to COLLECT 2015 - page 43

jewellery at COLLECT is for thework
to be considered as an art object, we
specifically term it art jewellery. So it’s
reasonable to say that there is a leaning
towards non-preciousmaterials and
more conceptual work. There iswork in
preciousmetals shown by such leaders
asGiovanni Corvaja [Adrian Sassoon],
but you’remore likely to find precious
metals combinedwith non-precious, for
example pieces such asWinfriedKrüger’s
[GalerieMarzee] oxidised silver, lead
strapping, textile pendant.’
Marzee’s plan-chest, whose drawers
housecarefullyarrangedconceptual
pieces by such artists asDorothea Prühl,
Junwon Jung, OttoKünzli, Rudolf Kocéa,
StefanoMarchetti andUte Eitzenhöfer
have become a regular banquet for
jewellery-holics. Fewer gallerieswill
show jewellery alone; many exhibitswill
include art pieces by overseasmakers.
AndCOLLECTwill give visitors an in-
depth historical understanding of the
contemporary jewellerymovement, with
