Moments of Perspective

Mid August has passed, and you are probably trying to enjoy the few days left of this summer….so while you hurry to the beach or to that beautiful path into the mountains, or leisure in the luxurious greens of some not-so-hot spot, here we share with you what some of our students have been doing, because in the end vacation can get boring, too. At least for Alchimists.

In Amsterdam, guided by their MFA tutor Lucy Sarneel, the students of our second year MFA program have been presenting a pop-up exhibition titled “Moments of Perspective”, introducing to a diverse cultural crowd their two-years long research and a number of statements around it. In essence this was a moment to try-out ideas regarding the difficult task of thinking in and through space their jewelry pieces, while also having to mediate them to an audience. Their texts were the product of a three-days workshop with AJF editor in chief Benjamin Lignel, who worked with them on creative writing, meaning analyzing and experimenting with the many ways in which a work can exist and be described through words, thinking of language as a powerful form of craft, part and parcel of the students’ collections.

This activity is part of a pedagogical process that supports students in going public, addressing holistically the many aspects that constitute the profession of a contemporary jewelry maker.

Enjoy images (and the rest of the holidays), and more soon.

Yours,

Alchimia
