The Burghers

Atelier Van Lieshout The Burghers, 2021 satin and polished silver bracelet 3 x 7.5 x 7.5 cm Edition of 8 Signed and numbered The Burghers symbolizes the ever-present human dilemma which is arguably more relevant today than ever before: the choice between the known and the unknown, between security and insecurity, between tradition and progress. The bracelet draws from a universal and timeless theme: what does one do in an emergency situation? The figures huddled together and each in a different state of mind, represent the various emotions that people go through in a time of conflict: heroism, fear, rebellion, survival, escape, compassion, cowardice, joy, loneliness and doubt. Moreover, The Burghers embodies the honeycomb that is humanity: civilians united together or alternately ensnared by the society that surrounds them. Like crabs clawing one another back into the trap, the artworks questions what we do if an opportunity arose, what role would each of us play? That of the Hero? Nerd? Killer? Helper? Healer? Saint or Sinner?

Gigi Mariani Dance, 2020 Silver, 18kt yellow gold, niello bracelet External diameter 10 x1,8cm, size 6,4cm Unique and signed Gigi Mariani’s works have aimed to revitalise antique techniques of gold smithing. Incorporating niello, a blackener with the aid of sulphur, he conceals the preciousness of the silver metal. Under the application of heat, “blood clots” and cracks appear in the surfaces — re-purposing the surface materiality into earthen grounds, aged and weathered. Mariani extends his instinctive approach of using the metal surface as a canvas, incorporating clean geometric forms of metallic droplets as if to indicate the human erosion of the earth, and the ring as a landscape picture. Mariani’s practice as both visual artist and goldsmith demonstrates his full awareness of materiality and its characteristics towards wearable works of art, which makes his unique creations so charismatic and sculptural to the wearer.
