YOU ARE HERECurated by David Sandu
Organized by Assamblage (RO)Instituto Cultural Romeno em Lisboa
14 September, Tuesday
Until 18 October, Monday
Monday to Friday 9h–17h
YOU ARE HERE is a project that explores jewelry as a medium to communicate, in a particular and subjective manner, the way we experience a changed and different world. In a constant attempt to understand, adapt, reprioritize and find new systems of evaluation, we came to realize that life can be a spot between two rows of parallel mirrors, an infinite reflection of one self in which there is no difference between the question and the answer.
The exhibition is organized by Assamblage Association and the Romanian Cultural Institute in Lisbon as a dedicated project for the first edition of the Lisbon Contemporary Jewellery Biennial and it will present the works of six Romanian designers – Andreia Gabriela Popescu,Diana Tobosaru, Gena Tudor, Madalina Spiridon, Magdalena Pelmus and Ramona Popescu.
ASSAMBLAGE — The National Association for Contemporary Jewelry in Bucharest, Romania, founded in May 2015 by David Sandu, Ioana Andrei and Valentina Buzamurga. It is the result of an ongoing project which aims to support,develop and structure the emerging field of contemporary jewelry.
