The Blue Room

For the 2024 SCHMUCK edition, The Blue Room hosts a site-specific contemporary jewelry project curated by Nichka Marobin and entitled “A TALE OF MULTIPLE WORLDS | Synthesis and possibilities on colours and preciousness”.

Colours (and specifically the seven following shades: WHITE – RED - BLACK – BLUE- YELLOW- GREEN- VIOLET) have been part of humankind since the beginning. As jewellery, they convey any sort of message; as jewellery, colours are related to the body, to power, religion, art, love, life, and death. As jewellery, colours are connected to social history, anthropology, science, religion, politics, art. As jewellery, they are connected to the significance we give to artifacts. As jewellery, colours are both metaphors and messages. As art, jewels, and colours are full of stories and leit-motiv: they are stories, memories, and journeys.

The exhibition would on display from February 28th to March 3th.
