Exhibition view – INVISIBLE by Lumy Nouguez

On 11 November 2016, Lumy Nouguez opened her solo show INVISIBLE, featuring the collection realized during the MFA program of Alchimia.

The exhibition was articulated as a treasure hunt, with a starting and end point in a yoga-studio turned exhibition venue while most pieces where spread in a variety of spaces united by the creative and experimental approach to their discipline: an antiquaire, two concept stores, a hair dresses, a fashion and a glasses shop. San Frediano neighborhood at its best. The craft and the love for a discipline whatever that may be.

Below a short text and a myriad of images will tell you this story.

Enjoy

INVISIBLE – a solo show by Lumy Nouguez

It’s yoga Firenze (Light Lite)
Via dei Serragli, 24r, 50124

INVISIBLE is a series of 213 jewellery pieces created to populate surfaces on the body and beyond.

INVISIBLE is jewellery meant to draw attention, to stop a distracted glance, and to be an encounter with the unsuspected.

INVISIBLE talks about a process and a transformation from the ordinary to the extraordinary. It talks about the metamorphosis of organic substances, and focuses on the microorganisms that provoke this metamorphosis by transforming them into jewellery.

Creating “mold” to be worn as jewellery might be felt as a provocation, a provocation to feel and to see what is normally disdained. It is an invitation to accept a natural process of life in its inherent beauty, an invitation to break the boundaries of traditional jewellery, while exploring new possibilities of wearability and reinterpretation.

The exhibition itself is again an invitation to stroll around and explore particular spaces.
It has its starting and ending point in “It’s Yoga” (Light Lite), Via dei Serragli, 24r, 50124 at 5p.m with an installation explaining the project. The exhibition itself evolves as treasure hunt where the visitors will follow a map with a route to find jewellery pieces spread in the area of the city.

This was possible thanks to the collaboration of I Visionari, Coexist, Quelle tre, Wave Parrucchieri, Luca and Bjork.
