The Wilde Things. The so contemporary jewellery collection of Mrs. Wilde
13.10.2013 to 19.01.2014
The intense and intimate relationship between jewellery and its wearer is unique in our material culture. Twenty-five contemporary pieces of jewellery from 'Mrs. Wilde's' collection together create a fictional story. Together the story/book written by Oscar van den Boogaard, the jewellery and a movie by Manon de Boer tell the story of Mrs. Wilde's collection of contemporary jewellery and the personal memories and meanings attached to them. In this narrative exhibition, jewellery as 'material memory' is interwoven with life.

With The Wilde Things, Z33 explores new presentation models for contemporary jewellery in a context (of the wearer) and within a narrative framework. Furthermore it takes a critical look at current developments within this discipline, which has evolved since the 1960s to become an autonomous, artistic, and reflective design practice.  

With: Volker Atrops (DE), Gijs Bakker (NL), Dinie Besems (NL), Iris Bodemer (DE), Liesbet Bussche (BE), Nicolas Cheng (SE) & Beatrice Brovia (IT/SE), Boris de Beijer (NL), Hilde De Decker (BE), Gemma Draper (SP), Iris Eichenberg (DE), Silke Fleischer (BE), Irma Földényi (HU), Studio Formafantasma (IT/NL), Karl Fritsch (DE), Hannah Joris (BE), Lore Langendries (BE), Tzu-Ling Lee (TW), Benjamin Lignel (FR), Suska Mackert (DE), Jorge Manilla (MX/BE), Evert Nijland (NL), Katrin Spranger (DE), Manon van Kouswijk (NL), Lisa Walker (NZ), Christoph Zellweger (CH).
