Many artists have chosen jewelry as a means of personal expression and communication. The artist, questioning about his environment and his time, therefore creates works of art, which by being worn, amplify their significance. A particular relationship is established between the person who wears it, the piece itself and the viewer. Confronting our perceptual traditions and distinguishing itself from commercial, craft and sacred jewellery, these creations find their place at the forefront of what will become accepted as tomorrow’s everyday norm.
Through diverse collections and exhibitions, Galerie Noel Guyomarc’h encourages visitors to cast a new eye on jewellery. Much more than simple decorative objects, the jewellery presented is indeed the result of an exploration of both form and content. As in all authentic art, pieces of jewellery can therefore move, seduce, disturb, or provoke reflection. Audacious and engaged, the creations of those artists testify to the diversity of discourse and ideas, which characterises the art of our time.
