Elisabetta Cipriani- Jewellery by Artists is delighted to announce the new projects Sospeso by Giorgio Vigna in collaboration with the gallery on Thursday 13th of March from 6-8pm.
Giorgio Vigna’s unique jewellery is the essence of natural elements in their most primitive and primordial state. He treads the unusual ground between the real world and the imaginary one, and his creations have the fascination of objects that live in dreams, both familiar and strange.
Suspended memory, Caged in the game between the full and the empty.
Inspired by the large sculpture displayed in the Fortuny Palace in Venice for the ‘TRA’ exhibition and the bronze installation for the ‘Stati Naturali’ exhibition at Palazzo Vecchio in Verona, Giorgio Vigna’s geodes become wearable micro sculptures, fragments of the cosmos to be leant on the body, adorn the fingers and be held in the palm of a hand.
Sospeso is a series of five unique pieces each in a limited edition of five, in the form of pendants or rings, which evoke both the day and the night: the oxidized silver darkness is illuminated by precious bright stars, the radiant light of the gold segments the daily passage of time. Inside the mass of dark matter hides voices animated by movement. A game between the full and the empty, that tells stories from elsewhere.
In another space of the gallery the series Segmenti will be presented, a collection of unique pieces among which necklaces, pendants, rings, brooches and bracelets. The segments are made in gold or oxidized silver, connected by a 18kt yellow gold soldering surrounding precious stones like diamonds and rubys.
Giorgio Vigna’s (Verona, 1955) work is constantly developing along an imaginary line between the various fields of art and design, His work, sensibile to tribal evocations and to ethnic memories of which he is passionate connoisseur and collector, matter and form are always in close relation with the body and its gestures.
Vigna’s work is displayed in mayor public collections worldwide including:
The State Hermitage, Saint Petersburg, Russia. MAD, Museum of Arts & Design, New York, USA. Barbier-Mueller Museum, Geneve, Switzerland. Indianapolis Museum of Art, Indianapolis, Indiana, USA. Museo degli Argenti, Palazzo Pitti, Firenze, Italy. Miaao, Museo Internazionale delle Arti Applicate Oggi, Turin, Italy.
