Erwin Wurm Cucumber, 2014 silver ring with sapphires edition of 10 signed and numbered Erwin Wurm’s diverse, multimedia, witty oeuvre proclaims that “all is sculpture” in the spaces occupied by both art and life. The artist’s project of the ironic sculpture is one of the essential subversive strategies of modern art, occupying a prominent and original position. For an awards ceremony Wurm created a pickled cucumber, a parody of a figure of victory, outweighing provocation. From this idea he created a series of 40 works entitled Self-Portrait as Cucumber, showing his ability to laugh at himself. The jewellery project in collaboration with Elisabetta Cipriani recreates the provocation and irony of the self-portrait works, with a series of cucumber made in silver and sapphires. What Wurm wants to raise with this work is the astonishment caused by realising that the jewellery, made with precious gems, represent a simple vegetable that would otherwise be unnoticed or considered unattractive.

Rebecca Horn The Third Eye, 2014 22kt yellow gold, silver agata, ring 2.6 x 2.6 cm unique and signed The jewelry project came to life through collaboration between the artist and Luisa del Valle, a noted goldsmith living in Spain.  After months of research, del Valle sourced rare stones, shells and ammonites to develop the concept of movement and energy central to Horn’s work. Each piece is unique, hand-made and exquisitely crafted by del Valle through the ancient Etruscan technique.  As a result of their collaboration, this jewelry is  a mélange of antiquity and contemporaneity, timeless sculptural pieces in the form of rings, earrings and necklaces which are deeply sensual.
