What a sh**show of a year. Lockdown, lockjaw, social distancing, virtuality, so many screens and a nebulous continuum of time without movement. For some of us, anyway. What is jewellery without bodies and in isolation? Perhaps process, therapy, repetition, memory, distillation of thought into form, fear, hope – or there is no jewellery: only a jeweller without vocation. So many responded from around the globe. So many stories. So many objects: ‘Coronas’ reinterpreted, lockdown martinis, memento mori, obsessions, autobiography and political statement. TempContemp and Bridget Kennedy Project Space present the pandemic works, thoughts and experiences of 34 contemporary jewellers.
