Overreacting: Jewelry Speaks Self-Destruction

Twelve contemporary jewelers from Israel return to Munich Jewellery Week

Twelve contemporary jewelers from Israel return to Munich, this time overreacting to a new subject: self-destruction. Each artist explores this concept from a different perspective, and together they show varied interpretations of both self and destruction. The topic is expressed through personal and global issues, ranging from works about stress-eating and emotional overload to over-consumption and the environmental crisis. Other works examine jewelry’s ability to not only criticize social aspects but also to reflect upon itself as an active participant in the process of self-destruction. 

Participating Artists:

Tamar Paley

Katia Rabey

Keren Gispan

*With the generous support of The Jewelry Design Department, Shenkar College.

From fragile glass rings to large organic kombucha objects - the pieces displayed are suggested as a medium for introspection in hopes of one day overcoming these vicious forms of self-destruction.
