Ar.Co–Centro de Arte e Comunicação Visual, Lissabon
Exhibition of jewellery and blacksmithing students at the Biennial of Contemporary Jewellery in Lisbon includes EKA students Erle Nemvalts, Taavi Teevet, Terje Meisterson, Isimini Pachi, Tauris Reose, Mirjam Aun and Kristiina Tang on 17.–20. September 2021 at Ar.Co – Centro de Arte e Comunicação Visual, at the first Lisbon Contemporary Jewelery Biennale SUOR FRIO / COLD SWEAT
The challenge was presented to 8 European schools with different approaches to contemporary jewellery, with the aim of creating dialogues between young participants. The exhibition, as well as the biennial more generally, invites to reflect on three contemporary keywords – body, fear and protection, the latter of which refers to the characteristic historical aspect of jewellery as a means of protection for the wearer.
Participating schools are: Ar.Co – Centro de Arte e Comunicação Visual, Burg Giebichenstein– Hochschule für Kunst und Design Halle (DE), Central of Saint Martins – University of the Arts (UK), École Nationale Supérieur d’Árts de Limoge (F), Eesti Kunstiakadeemia (EE), Lucerne School of Art and Design (CH), PXL-MAD School of Arts Media Arts Design (B) and Saint Lucas School of Arts Antwerpen (B).
