'A Decade of Wearable Art', Elisabetta Cipriani Gallery, London (UK)


21 November 2019 until 13 December 2019

Various jewellery designs of Atelier Van Lieshout are part of ‘A Decade of Wearable Art’. This exhibition is featuring an eclectic and broad range of wearable art collaborations from the past ten years at the Elisabetta Cipriani Gallery.

The jewellery pieces in collaboration with Cipriani are typical for Atelier Van Lieshout’s deliberate contradictions between form and function. Five Pointed Golden Knuckle, (2010) is on display and can be worn as a ring, but also can be used, if the situation demands, as a weapon. Other AVL jewellery, Ear Hangers (2009), Oval Family (2010) and Happy Cufflinks (2009), are part of the exhibition as well.

Womb (2005), is now settled in the USA as it will be shown in a group exhibition at Harvard Graduate School of Design. This group exhibition, “Love in a Mist: The Politics of Fertility”, is exploring several narratives on the spaces and politics of fertility. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Womb is a stylized representation of the interior of the female body, almost a perfect anatomical rendition of one of the organs that keeps us going.⠀⠀⠀
