The Pleasure of Being

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. You can find out more about his work here and Unexpected Pleasures Here
