Jewellery exhibition of MOME alumnae at Eventüell Gallery

Family history, intimacy, pins and futuristic structures

Family history, intimacy, pins and futuristic structures  

The exhibition Encounters 9 by jewellery designers Csenge Diriczi, Patrícia Harsány, Szilvia Rémiás and Luca Ujvári-Zsiga will be on display until 2 July at Eventüell Gallery downtown. The series Encounters was launched by the founders of the gallery in 2021, featuring works only by Czech, Polish, German, Hungarian, Spanish and Slovakian contemporary designers to date. This time, it showcases works by the youngest contemporary jewellery designers debuting at last year’s Design Without Borders exhibition, including Design Without Borders 2018 laureate Szilvia Rémiás. 
All the designs of the four artists, each with a completely different design vision, are characterised by a passion for experimentation and a narrative approach. Several of the artworks created during the pandemic reflect on the resulting extraordinary situation, and its implications: introversion and isolation. 
Csenge Diriczi’s series SENSE|s, 2021 showcases the different stages of intimacy in a romantic relationship from detection of attraction until a fulfilled relationship develops. The unusual items are all focused around perception and touching, relying on still-like gestures expressing various levels of intimacy.  
Patrícia Harsány’s Re_Object series is both narrative and conceptual at the same time, and through the use of alternative materials and techniques explores the meaning of contemporary jewellery, pushing the boundaries of the genre. This reinterpretation is performed using ordinary items, which, when placed into a next context, gain not only new functions but also new layers of meaning.  
Szilvia Rémiás’s Body Light collection consists of futuristic experimental constructions. The items are lifted away from the surface of the human body. The LED lights illuminate certain parts of the body, putting the hands, shoulders, neck and face in the limelight. In the spring, the items were included in the Schmuckmuseum’s Pforzheim Art Jewellery by Young Talents at the Museum collection. 
Luca Ujvári-Zsiga’s MEETING POINT – Circles of memories series explores heredity and the sustainability of memories. Her collection, inspired by family heirlooms, is made up of metal disks documenting the coordinates of locations that hold a special importance for successive owners, encouraging the wearer to visit these places of happy memories, relate to them, take ownership of them.
