CHAIN

crafthaus online exhibit:

November 2-December 2, 2012


Participants were asked to send one image of a piece of chain between 10 and 20 cm long. The online exhibit is the result of the images selected and linked in a long and unique chain shown on real size.These works are visually connected by a round jump link.

Exhibition: CHAIN

... A long chain that could cross the Oceans ... this idea was the starting point of Chain Project. Now, launching the exhibition online I realize, by different approach, that the initial concept of this work has been reached.

I’m very thankful to all participants that were moved by this idea, especially Brigitte Martin who promptly accepted to exhibit it on crafthaus website.
I received submissions from 130 participants, all of them of very high quality Works that made the curatorial experience very difficult and joyful at the same time.

I’m very pleased to announce that this exhibition will be presented physically from 20 Februrary to 22 March 2013 at A CASA Museum of Brazilian Object – in São Paulo, Brazil.

Now, take your time, and enjoy the show... the further information about artists and pieces are listed on a separate page following the exhibition.

I would prefer to link all the chains with metal as silver, gold, niobium and  cooper  jump rings, in different sizes , dialoguing with the proportions and materials of the chains. Links that could be easily open, to put the chains together for the exhibition and undo the chain after the show.

Will the I individual segments be physically connected, and if so, how?
Comment by Marina Sheetikoff on July 13, 2012 at 8:26pm

to expose the actual chain!

Tremendous news, Marina. Will that be an exhibition of the photographs or the actual chain?

A message from Marina Sheetikoff to all members of CHAIN on crafthaus!

I'm a little bit shy, because my English is no so good, my native language is Portugues, but I need to say that I am delighted with this project!
Some news! One thing leads to another and  in 2013 there is an interest of ACASA museu do objeto brasileiro http://www.acasa.org.br to expose the CHAIN, here in São Paulo!

What are the adornments of dictators, despots, and the plain delusional? What do they need in order to let their real personalities shine through? What tools do tyrants have to show that they are in charge? See for yourself!
