Forgetting Jewellery

Forgetting Jewellery Evènement, Conférence / Colloque

Time scale 8h00

Medusa, Jewellery and Taboos is a ground breaking trans-historical and trans-disciplinary exhibition. It chose to deconstruct the biases that define our perception of ornament as supposedly too feminine, too precious, too corporeal, and too primitive. Those four themes allowed us to explore jewellery in its relation to identity and the production of value(s), and to address the questions of jewellery’s autonomy and of the rituals that surround it.
