An exhibition curated by Céline Sylvestre, Galatée Pestre and Laurence Verdier that describes the borders of contemporary jewellery.

In their own words: ” Our body is the vessel with which experience the world, the jewel being its figure-head”.

Works of 22 artists that talk about the topics: language of shape, stereotype and singularity, impermanence and fragility, geography of memories, theater of reminiscence and primitive nature.

Experimental work, new materials, the object, the relation with the body, the personal perception are the research basis for these two schools.
