One of my jewellery crushes: Edu Tarin
"Jewellery could be understood in a different way for each person, but everybody will recognize some shapes, symbols and meanings. This project is based on appropriating the concept, idea and image of jewellery implanted in the collective memory of our cultural environment. I wanted to establish a link with the viewer questioning the function of the jewellery business today, and then reinterpret it in a critical current context.
The popular concept of traditional jewellery reborn in a new piece in which jewellery never could be understood as it is. Repeating the same pattern, again and again, till it lose any sense as what we know for jewellery, reaching another point between what it is and what it should be, between what is present and what comes from the imaginary, between the subjective and the collective." - Edu Tarin
