In October 2020, a first edition of the ‘Boîte avec couvercle’ [‘Box with lid’] exhibition, which looked at how jewels interact with their receptacles, was a major success at the Galerie Samagra during the series of jewel events in Paris, known as the ‘Parcours bijoux’.
Joya Brussels (Aurore de Heusch) and Hectare Galerie (Chloé Noyon et Lou Sautreau) have joined forces in a follow-up of this project. They are inviting you to see the original exhibition at Joya Brussels and a second edition of it at Hectare Galerie. Come and discover 18 Belgian and international artists invited for the occasion.
In their work, everyone questions the concept of material used to show off jewellery. It is a transition between the world outside and the world inside that can be observed in sculptured rings and pendants containing your dearest wishes, brooches to be opened etc. From Charlotte Vanhoubroeck’s sentimental jewellery to Thanh Truc Nguyen’s architectural jewellery, the worlds interweave with a poetic language of their own.
