Elisabetta Cipriani is pleased to announce a new collaborative project with renowned Italian artist Enrico Castellani. Nastro (1963-2016) is an exclusive jewel made from 18kt yellow satin gold that can be worn either as a brooch or as a necklace. The artist has created an edition of ten pieces, on show and available at Elisabetta Cipriani gallery, London from 29 February 2016. Enrico Castellani is regarded as one of Italy’s most important living artists. The new work Nastro can be located within the artist’s wider practice in the way in which it expresses Castellani’s consistent poetical engagement with the manipulation of surfaces and light, evident here in the elegant bending of a single strip plate into an intriguing anthropomorphic shape. Nastro has a connection with Castellani’s personal history, first coming to life in 1963 when the artist decided to design and create a gift for his then partner, a token of love that the recipient has kept with her ever since. The piece embodies a more unconventional aesthetic than Superficie, a jewellery collaboration between Cipriani and Castellani realised in 2012, which exhibits the artist’s characteristic relief surfaces as seen in the Castellani celebrated series of work Superficie Nera (1959).
