Chiharu Shiota, Carrying Memory, 2018 18kt gold, ring 4 x 10 cm Unique within an edition of 8 + 2AP Signed Through the use of 18kt gold, Chiharu Shiota intricately intertwines and folds threads which gradually expand into the universe, becoming an extension of the body in space. The ring that can also be used as a pendant, has been conceived and perceived in the same way as Shiota’s thread installations in which she integrates meaningful object related to everyday life. The traces left behind by a human life are also conceptually explored in the ring/pendant, which is made entirely of golden webbed threads to symbolise the inside of a human body.

Chiharu Shiota Carrying Memory, 2018 18kt yellow gold and oxidised silver necklace ⌀ 20 cm Unique within a series of 8 plus 2 AP. Signed   Through the use of 18kt gold, Chiharu Shiota intricately intertwines and folds threads which gradually expand into the universe, becoming an extension of the body in space. For the necklace, Chiharu Shiota chose to create the art piece around a key, a meaningful object related to everyday life. Viewing keys as “familiar and very valuable things that protect important people and spaces in our lives”, the artist invites us to make a profound and treasured connection with the necklace. Within the golden threads, Shiota suspends the contrasting silver key with a powerful, dark and dreamlike potency.

Sissi Nidi (Nests), 2018 18 kt gold threads with diamonds, sapphires, rubies and emeralds, pendant /brooch 10,5 x 3,5 cm Unique Nidi (Nests) is a project entirely handmade by the artist and consists of a pair of earrings and two pendants that can also be worn as brooches or displayed as sculptures. Inspired by the idea of a safe place, these wearable sculptures like the natural nests, embrace the life and the body of the wearer. The gold pendant finds protection over the heart and when worn as a brooch, finds its peace between the branches of the ribs. Manual ability is central in Sissi’s work: she delicately intertwines and welds gold and silver threads with coloured stones and twists hand painted enamelled strips to make a new skin that represent an extension between her work and her body in the space. In the artist’s practise, everything starts from a small element that grows and develops in different forms. This flow take shape from the soul of the artist and is articulated from the body with a potentially infinite form.

BONE NECKLACE WITH MOUTH

Meret Oppenheim Bone Necklace with mouth 2014- design from 1935-1936 18kt gold burnished 21 x 22.5 cm x 44 cm Editions 17 + 3AP Gems and Ladders Edition Meret Oppenheim designed and commissioned the bone necklace with mouth in 1935-36. The original brass prototype is in a private collection, and the necklace is now realised from cut gold sheet. This necklace shows Oppenheim’s ability to collage materials and subjects: at the centre of the defensive row of bones is a feminine mouth. Collage was the perfect Surrealist medium and this piece also illustrates one of the artist’s lasting themes: bones featured in works throughout her career. Take for example her self-portrait of 1964 X-RAY of M.O.’s Skull (M.O. 1913-2000); the x-ray image suggests that the viewer might see the artist’s essence. Meret Oppenheim, however, teasingly pre-empted her own death in the work’s title and hid behind her earrings, rings and necklace, the metal objects that would endure for many decades thereafter.
