From year to year the great rendez vous of the contemporary jewellery in Munich at Schmuck has become the date I can’t miss for any reason in the world. Artists, gallerists, collectors, designers, followers and bloggers are gathered in such a beau désordre which involves the city in continuous festive time that excites me everytime I go to Munich.
This year in particular, I have to confess, I came home keeping an inner image of stunning freshness and youthfulness, an inner and deep image of creativity and inventivness, as promise of great expectations. Hereto my personal and emotional journey into Schmuck.
11.00 A.M._SUSPEND·ED An Installation hanging by a thread.
At Studio Gabi Green, (a truly nice space with a joyful gallerist!), the young curator Laura Bradshaw-Heap organized a stunning exhibit giving voice to ninteen young creators: Supend·Ed. The objects were, as the title says, suspended and hanged, the shadows were different from hour to hour and the result was simply stunning and amazing!

12.30 A.M._IN THE FOREST_the enchanted forest of the Swedish artists.
I’ve always loved the great north, I do not why , but probably because of my meditative nature: the huge spaces, the deep silence and the forests lightly moved by the the breeze whispering as a mesmerizing voice is an image extremely fixed in my mind.
A special forest put a spell on me and enchanted my visit: Hannah Liljenberg, Sanna Svedestedt, Karin Roy Andersson and Pernilla Persson created an exhibition “which tells you the delicate jewellery stories from – and about – the forest”: look and meet these young artists. Simply great!
