2 in 1 = DieWaneka! _______Wieke Aerts & Dana Seachuga didn’t study together, nor did they work together. They simply met by chance, or what one might call pure coincidence. _________ A chain of unpredictable events ensured that both will share a common studio space under one roof for the last 5 years, more or less. Synchronicity____if you take it seriously or not, Wieke & Dana have.______Both decided to consider this chain of events as not only favourable circumstances, but a sign of a chance that should be taken!______________________________________________________This duo-expo of contemporary jewellery and body related objects is the outcome of this decision. It is an experiment. How to bring together two diverse personalities without a unifying theme, in a meshed confrontation.
From April 29th to May 8th 2022, Brussels was all about contemporary jewellery! The European capital brought together established and emerging artists, collectors and an international public for the very first edition of the Brussels Jewellery Week. BJW aims to showcase contemporary jewellery as a creative and innovative craft. In addition to the main exhibition at MAD Brussels, you could also participate in a city tour, talks and workshops. _________________________ Exhibition ‘In Fieri’ at MAD Brussels___In the heart of the Dansaert district, more than 100 contemporary jewels was on view during the main exhibition In Fieri. ________________In Fieri, which means “in the making” refers to the transformation of materials but also of the artist. It is the stage where “being made” and “becoming” overlap in a significant way.
