In recent years, one can now detect a new interest in the pearl: the example of the pearl is reflected not only the traditional functions of jewelry, but also to test new innovative ways of designing with the pearl. The pearl is by its shimmering surface, the regularity of its curvature or – to be just the opposite by the bizarre shapes – and their mysterious origin. Their beauty, their brilliance and their white color, they are left to the attribute of the goddess Venus.
The exhibition of the Galerie Handwerk Munich deals with these unusual forms of organization not only in the medium of jewelry, but also in the installation, the image and the object. The focus, however, is the jewelry. Works by 42 international artists will be presented to give an overview of the various trends in this current issue.
