Helen Carnac at Re-Public Jewellery: Re-public Jewellery: Social potential in contemporary jewellery.

Friday 13 March
10.00 - 15.00

Helen Carnac, Senior Lecturer in Jewellery and Programme Leader BA Jewellery, has been invited to present at the seminar Re-public Jewellery: Social potential in contemporary jewellery.  The presentations made in this seminar will investigate strategies to convey and communicate jewellery art in public space.

At a time when the idea of our bodies has become largely generalised and often with commercial overtones, jewellery appears as an art form that has the potential to be relevant for far more people than what seems to be the case today. Although a critique of the institutionalised display forms has been taking place more recently, very few alternatives have been examined. This is the case even though it is in the nature of jewellery to relate to the body and society, rather than to the white cube. Jewellery as an art form opens for the possibility to explore issues surrounding body identity in relation to public space. In the project Re-public jewellery we want to investigate strategies to convey and communicate jewellery art in public space. This project aims to explore a more socially oriented approach to jewellery and return it to the public place where it belongs - RE-PUBLIC jewellery.

Re-public Jewellery is a project produced by Martina Kaufmann, Professor Ingjerd Hanevold and Professor Anders Ljungberg at Oslo national academy of the arts, art and craft department,metal and jewellery in collaboration with The National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design in Oslo, The Norwegian Association for Arts and Crafts and Galerie Handwerk.
