It was unexpected and a great source of pleasure to have this work ‘One on Every Corner’ selected for Unexpected Pleasures, an exhibition currently on at the NGV-International. Curated by Susan Cohn and commissioned by the Design Museum in the UK the exhibition explores some of the links and thematic concerns between contemporary jewellery and design. It’s a gutsy effort by Cohn, informed by her highly attuned makers eye, years of extensive research and preparedness to make a definitive statement in regard to the existence of the Contemporary Jewellery Movement.
The highlights for me were seeing some of the international works that i had only seen images of – in particular the Bernard Schobinger bracelet ‘Holiday in Cambodia’ along with the beautiful photographic prints of his work on the body.
