Unexpected Pleasures Jewellery Exhibition


With over 200 objects from 26 countries on display Unexpected Pleasures represents a significant global survey of contemporary jewellery.

The ring by Camilla Prasch features on the cover of the catalogue and the NGV invite.

First on show at the National Gallery of Victoria, Melbourne, 20 April – 26 August 2012, this exhibition will also tour to the Design Museum in London, 5 Dec 2012 – 3 Mar 2013. Melbourne based designer and maker Dr. Susan Cohn (interview with The Age) has curated this exhibition for the Design Museum and is also co-author of the substantial catalogue documenting this event as well contributing to the discussion about contemporary design and making.

I find interesting that 2/3 of the makers who have been selected to contribute works come from only four countries: Australia, Germany, The Netherlands and the UK. Which seems to make these the centre of global contemporary jewellery.

The following piece of mine was selected for this exhibition:

Sterling Silver 000/925
11.5 x 66.4 x 52.9 mm

This object has its origin in mathematics. An equation describing a ‘minimal surface’, has been altered to explore its aesthetic properties. This form was built using ‘fused deposition manufacturing (FDM)’ a rapid prototyping process. This process generates a rough machine surface creating an intriguing surface pattern. You can find more information about this body of work by following this link.

Here is also a link to a more detailed review and many more images of works as well as the show in the NGV by Art Blart.
