The Word (Love) Made Flesh

  Kendell Geers The Word (Love) Made Flesh, 2019 Silver and enamel pendant 7 x 7.4cm Edition of 20 Signed and numbered The Word (Love) Made Flesh collection consists of a pendant and cufflinks featuring an intricate figurine-like design derived from the ‘Hwe Mu Dua’ (‘measuring stick’) symbol – the West African Andrinka symbol of excellence and perfection. The pendant beautifully displays different brightly coloured patterns on each side, whereas the cufflinks reveal positive and negative black and  images. These spiritually charged wearable sculptures cannot, however, be categorised as either European or African, but are rather representative of an interplay between cultures, archetypal signs, and sacred symbols. In the true spirit of Kendell Geers, the archetypal trickster, the ancient African symbols featured in The Word (Love) Made Flesh have been refashioned in an Afropunk style and spell out the word ‘LOVE.’ The Word (Love) Made Flesh thus epitomises the artist’s tendency to subvert ancient iconography by embracing both traditional and contemporary African aesthetics. As the title suggests, The Word (Love) Made Flesh invites the wearer to search for the hidden word within the figure. Words that reoccur throughout the artist’s works include ‘LOVE,’ ‘HATE,’ ‘FAITH,’ ‘FUCK,’ and ‘FREE,’ among others. The pendant and cufflinks can […]

Rebecca Horn Untitled, 2019 22kt yellow gold and labradorite necklace Length 43 cm; height of clasp 3.5 cm Unique and signed   In collaboration with Luisa del Valle, Rebecca Horn’s Untitled (2019) series encapsulates her interest in the talismanic nature of precious stones. After months of research, del Valle sourced rare, labradorite stones, of which have been revered for its protective properties. Horn was enchanted by their bright mirage of colours, creating this project of a unique 22k yellow gold and labradorite set of rings and a necklace. From every angle the wearer moves, each gemstone glows in the light. Wearing these protective talismans as it gleams a spectrum of colours is almost as if wearing the impressionists paintings of the 19th century.

Paolo Canevari Lupa Romana, 2019 micro-mosaic and 9kt rode gold pendant 4.5 x 3.5 cm 42.5 cm chain unique and signed   With his Wearable Art projects, Canevari delves into his ideas of drawing, painting, or sculpting iconography and recognisable imagery into another dimension: into something we can wear. Lupa Romana incorporated the ancient Roman micro-mosaic techniques, and features the She-Wolf, a significant symbol of Rome, celebrated for her nurturing and protective powers.  ‘I believe that the most important inspiration for an artist’s work is people’s way of thinking. Spirituality, as part of the human condition, brings with it a presence, a meaning, a symbol, a soul. I utilise icons in my work as a way of connecting with this fundamental truth. A tire, a skull or a bomb are recognisable images and part of our universal knowledge, just as much as a sacred image, or an image of a dog. What I do is use these icons in a new context, or structure, that places their meaning in jeopardy.’ – Paolo Canevari
