Portable Art Project
Exhibition, Hauser & Wirth, New York, US.
Celia Forner Venturi has collaborated with 15 contemporary artists to create objects that defy conventional definitions of jewellery, sitting somewhere between sculpture and wearable art. The artists’ designs are crafted from a variety of materials ranging from gold and silver with precious and semi-precious gems, to enamel, aluminum, bronze, and iron. Beginning with an exquisitely-crafted gold cuff conceived by Louise Bourgeois, the project evolved to include artists John Baldessari, Phyllida Barlow, Stefan Brüggemann, Subodh Gupta, Mary Heilmann, Andy Hope 1930, Cristina Iglesias, Matthew Day Jackson, Bharti Kher, Nate Lowman, Paul McCarthy, Caro Niederer, Michele Oka Doner, and Pipilotti Rist. The exhibition design is developed in collaboration with archite Luis Laplace.
