ARCHIVE:

JUNK: rubbish to gold playfully explores ideas of exchange, bartering, gathering, earning and giving by putting on display the entire process of creating the ‘work-of-art’.

All works available to bid on via a silent auction right NOW.    

 

Partnering charities supplied the masses of JUNK jewellery (750kgs in total). Local businesses provided tools and equipment. The School of Jewellery provided a venue for the performance. Jewellers and makers worldwide ‘gifted’ their skills. The participating jewellers and makers by selecting pieces of jewellery from the mountain of JUNK, (re)constructed them into reimagined artworks.

By displaying the process of making as it happens at the School of Jewellery and via live-streams, we sought to shift the focus from finished object to the processes and social interactions that go into the creation of the ‘work-of-art’. The objects we present here are the results of this week-long performance.

Due to the high volume of work created, the exhibition/auction is shown in multiple parts:

Part 1

Part 2

Part 3

Part 4

Part 5

Part 6

Part 7

I agree, great work.

Am wondering, though, if we will be able to see the bids submitted thus far, as one can in silent auctions IRL.

Cheers,

Mary
