1 x 1 Collective Shows Their Work at Vander A Gallery


1×1 is a project born to promote and diffuse contemporary art jewelry through exhibitions, fairs, and events.

It started in Florence from an idea by Margherita de Martino Norante and Eugenia Ingegno as an open and ever-changing collective of independent jewelry artists.

Artistic and technical research and the freedom of experimentation make the jewelry gain new functions and meanings. 1×1 is open to collaborations inside and outside of the jewelry field to find new ways for showing original works to a wider public.

1×1 changes its shape, leader and location following each project. It is an informal group of people based on active involvement, cooperation and sharing of ideas, knowledge and skills for the common goal of understanding and being understood.

For this exhibition at Vander A gallery in Brussels, we present 8 international artists, each very different from one another: Eunjae Baek (Korea), Sungho Cho (Korea), Margherita de Martino Norante (IT), Elinor de Spoelberch (BE), Marina Elenskaya (RU), Eugenia Ingegno (IT), Youn Bin Park (Korea), Yoko Shimizu (Jp).

We want to show the personal approach and research of each artist. We believe that each person’s individuality and autonomy is one of the strengths of contemporary art jewelry and that it gets highlighted through the free dialogue of a collective exposition.
